Junior Achievement Accepts US Bank Donation, Kicks Off Paducah Schools Partnership
This spring all 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms at McNabb will participate in Junior Achievement. Second graders will participate in the JA "Our Community" program and third graders will participate in the JA "Our City" program. At Paducah Tilghman High School, all freshmen will receive the "Real Jobs, Real World" program, which helps connect students' classroom career exploration activities with jobs in the real world.
US Bank district manager Bryan Carner and Lone Oak branch manager Crissy Bundren were on hand to make a $5,000 donation to Junior Achievment to help with implementation of the program in the Four Rivers region.
"Junior Achievement would not be possible without businesses who help with volunteers and donations," said Douglas. "We appreciate US Bank being a pace setter and hope that they will will serve as a role model for other businesses."
