Junior Achievement has given me the opportunity to help young people work toward bright professional futures. Through classroom programs and mentoring programs like JA Girls, I have helped middle and high school students toward pathways that will help them achieve success both today and later in life.” Dr. Martin’s volunteer efforts with Coach Mark Spader’s Bowling Green High School class are greatly appreciated.
