When the Tri-City Herald featured Junior Achievement in their “Christmas Wish List” series last holiday season, something magical happened — their wish came true!
Bob Tippett, Tippett Company and Khris Beyer, Real Centric Solutions came together to provide and build a first-ever storefront office for the organization in Crossroads Mall in Kennewick.
We want to sincerely thank all the businesses and individuals for donating their time and effort for this project and the TCH for running these articles. This new space ensures JA will continue to expand their program offerings reaching more than 11,000 students each year.
Junior Achievement programs prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to evaluate career options, manage their personal finances, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
We are grateful and honored to serve on a board in a community that recognizes the need, and is committed to prepare our future generation with the skills they need to be successful.
Calvin Dudney, Board Chairman
On behalf of Junior Achievement board of directors
