Association with Junior Achievement Keeps on Giving

Julie Hanks, communications and public relations manager of Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans, shared the legacy of inspiration given by volunteers and staff to one former Junior Achievement student.JA alumna Chloe Johnson was the mayor of Junior Achievement?s capstone program when her fifth-grade class visited the JA facility in 2003.?When Chloe later began studying Business Administration in college, she needed a part-time job and applied at Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans.?Chloe has been involved with both JA BizTown and JA Finance Park for the past two years while attending college classes.?[Greetings from New Orleans] <>Recently at an event, Chloe was asked to speak about her history with Junior Achievement.?She said it all began with her experience as the mayor. "I began to see myself differently.?I could picture a career in the future I wouldn?t have had the confidence to imagine before."Chloe?s story had a major effect on one of the donors in the room. The donor pledged the rest of Chloe?s college tuition would be covered?as long as she kept up her grades and her involvement with Junior Achievement!"The influence that Junior Achievement volunteers and staff have on students is not measured by time spent as much as it is by inspiration given," Hanks said.
