The JA Student of the Week is Dax Dew
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
The JA Student of the Week is Dax Dew, a 3rd grader at McNeill Elementary. The 3rd grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Our City” and it introduces students to the characteristics of cities and how cities are shaped by zoning. Students also learn about the importance of money to a city; how financial institutions help businesses and city residents; and how the media is an integral part of a city’s life. Students learn the role of an entrepreneur by exploring what it takes to open a restaurant. Dax wants to be a professional baseball coach when he grows up. Dax’s favorite part of JA was a quote by his classroom volunteer, “Your income leads to your outcome and your upkeep leads to your downfall.” He also said, “I loved the $2 bills our volunteer gave us and have it saved in a safe spot!”
