BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
his week’s JA People of Action features Lafaithe Carver, Head Teller in the Plano office of American Bank and Trust. Lafaithe is currently volunteering for a 4th grade classroom at Cumberland Trace Elementary. The 4th grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Our Region” and it introduces students to entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs use resources to produce goods and services in a region. Students operate a hypothetical hot dog stand to understand the fundamental tasks performed by a business owner and to track the revenue and expenses of a business. Lafaithe’s favorite part of JA is, “the interaction with the kids.” She also said, “My experience with JA has allowed me to share knowledge with different schools and different grades to set them on a good path in everyday life.”
