BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
The JA Students of the Week are Mason and Bryce Davis, a 7th grader at Franklin Simpson Middle School and 5th grader at Lincoln Elementary School. The 7th grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA It’s My Business” and it focuses on encouraging students to use critical thinking to learn entrepreneurial skills. Those skills include knowing customers’ wants and needs, launching effective marketing, and creating detailed business plans. By examining the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs, students learn that a belief in one’s self can make positive things happen in life. The 5th grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Our Nation” and it focuses on providing practical information about the need for employees who can meet the demands of the 21st century job market, particularly high-growth, high-demand jobs. By program’s end, students will understand the skills, especially in science, technology, engineering, and math, that will make their futures brighter. Mason wants to be a chemist when he grows up and Bryce wants to be a chef. Mason’s favorite part of JA were the activities and Bryce’s was working with the volunteer and learning about real life things.
