This week’s JA People of Action features Destiny O’Rourke, College and Career Coach at Bowling Green High School. Mrs. O’Rourke works with JA to plan job shadow events for BGHS students. Mrs. O’Rourke’s favorite thing about Junior Achievement is that it offers “real world career exploration for our students!” She also said, “Each year that our students participate in the M&L Electrical job shadowing experience they come back excited about their future career opportunities. We love our partnership with JA!”
