This week’s JA People of Action features Melanie Keeling
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
This week’s JA People of Action features Melanie Keeling, College and Career Readiness Coach at Warren East High School. Mrs. Keeling works with JA to plan job shadow events and helps make the connection between faculty and JA staff to find the best program for their classroom. Mrs. Keeling’s favorite thing about Junior Achievement is that it offers “so many opportunities!” She also said, “One of the most wonderful attributes of Junior Achievement is how responsive its leaders are; if I have an idea, a request, a suggestion, they will locate a speaker, a program, a plan to meet that need. It is a terrific partnership to maintain and WCPS is fortunate to be a part of it.”
