Ms. Waddell works with JA to plan job shadow events and help make the connection between faculty and JA staff to find the best program for their classroom. Ms. Waddell’s favorite thing about Junior Achievement is that “JA gets our students LIFE READY.” She also said, “I love how JA is always seeking opportunities to connect our students with real and meaningful experiences.
