This week’s JA People of Action features the volunteers and supporters of Junior Achievement’s fundraiser: Chili & Cheese & Community. Sponsored by English Lucas Priest and Owsley LLP and Sublime Media Group and presented in partnership with the WKU Alumni Association and WBKO, this community event gathered JA supporters throughout our area to raise money for JA programs and to recognize the hard work JA undertakes in providing financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work and career readiness curriculum to students. JA of South Central Kentucky is humbled by the tremendous outpouring of community support shown during this event and the dedicated volunteers who made this fundraiser a success! Many thanks to Wendy’s and Montana Grille of Bowling Green and our hardworking JA Board for their commitment to Junior Achievement. And, to the community in which we live and work, we are grateful to each and every one of you for advocating for JA and impacting the young leaders of tomorrow.
