This week’s JA People of Action features Allie Sharp
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
This week’s JA People of Action features Allie Sharp, President of Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky. Allie’s favorite thing about Junior Achievement is “the students. Hands down. It’s amazing to see it ‘click’ for some of them while you are teaching. When they get excited about their business or invention or ‘job’ they received – it’s exciting for them and for me! And working with the amazing teachers is also such a highlight for me.” She also said, “I’m so lucky to be able to not only be a volunteer for JA for over six years, but to be able to work at such an amazing organization. I have such a passion for education, and it’s exciting to connect with the students, teachers and other volunteers within the community.”
