This week’s JA People of Action features Bethany Smith
This week’s JA People of Action features Bethany Smith, Director, Educational Opportunity Centers, a TRIO program housed at WKU, and JA board member. Bethany has been very involved with Junior Achievement for many years. Bethany’s favorite thing about JA is, “getting to know the students.” She also said, “Working with the seniors at Bowling Green High School on soft skills was great. The work world complains about the students not knowing soft skills and my theory is then go teach it. Volunteer for JA and help educate the next generations of workers.”
