BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -

This week’s JA People of Action are Kelley Price, 4th grade teacher at McNeill Elementary, and Lindsey Sanson, AVP Business Development and Marketing at American Bank and Trust. The 4th grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Our Region” and it introduces students to entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs use resources to produce goods and services in a region. Students operate a hypothetical hot dog stand to understand the fundamental tasks performed by a business owner and to track the revenue and expenses of a business. Mrs. Price’s favorite part of JA is “the real world connections for students.” She also said, “Every experience/volunteer my students have had with JA has been positive! The students thoroughly enjoy the interactions and relationships they make with the volunteers. The lessons are fun, age appropriate, and give real world connections for students so they can prepare for life outside our McNeill walls.” Lindsey’s favorite part of JA is, “encouraging the students to believe in themselves.” She also said, “I continue to volunteer for, and support Junior Achievement, because I see firsthand the difference it can make in students’ lives and help prepare them for a bright future.”
