A grant from Bechtel and help from Bechtel employees will allow the expansion of Junior Achievement programs in the Mid-Columbia, according to Junior Achievement.

Bechtel has provided $25,000 to be distributed over two years. Its employees will help deliver programs to students during the school day focusing on entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness as part of the Building Future Leaders initiative.

Bechtel is interested in showing students the possibilities of an engineering career, said Charleen Wheeless, head of Bechtel's Global Corporate Affairs.
