BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -

This week’s JA People of Action features Holly Whittinghill

This week’s JA People of Action features Holly Whittinghill, College and Career Coach at Greenwood High School. Mrs. Whittinghill 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.  Mrs. Whittinghill’s favorite thing about Junior Achievement is “connecting volunteers and students.” She also said, “I began to love JA as a classroom teacher having a volunteer who taught the Be Entrepreneurial curriculum. We saw students not only have innovative thinking but put those into practice by creating products and services. Several students went on to pursue related college degrees! Seeing those light bulb moments is why JA is essential in classrooms!”
