This week’s JA People of Action features Laurel Raimondo Martin, President of Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass. Laurel’s favorite thing about JA are the programs Junior Achievement offers. She also said, “Junior Achievement programs allow students to see the world beyond their school and how their education today can impact and shape their future. I love sharing JA programs with young people and watching their confidence grow as they grasp concepts and how to apply them to their daily lives.”
