LISTEN: Brian Henshaw -Junior Achievement Rising Star of the Week
Posted June 9th, 2014 @ 9:52am

In the words of his teacher, don't be surprised if our Junior Achievement "Rising Star of the Week" becomes a golf course developer in a few years. 

That was the mock business that Brian Henshaw developed in his Business Ownership class.  He had to draw up plans on how and where he would build a course.

"I chose Georgia because of weather and Florida is overpopulated with golf courses, so I thought Georgia would be the second best place."

Brian recently graduated from Dwyer High School and, according to his business teacher Candice Ashurst, he excelled at everything. 

He tells me what he learned from Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast.

"It's definitely taught me to watch my money and taught me to save my money and what to do with it."

We're putting the call out to parents and teachers to nominate a student to be a Junior Achievement "Rising Star".  Each week, we'll feature a student on-air and online.

This is open to all kids, from Kindergarten to 12th grade, who have taken or are currently taking a JA class

You can nominate through JA's website, Click Here, or call 561-242-9468. 

We also want to put the call out to business professionals in the area who have as few as five to ten hours total to volunteer in the classrooms. 

Newsradio 1290 WJNO and Wild 95.5 appreciate your help on this project with JA of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast and hopefully it gives you a good feeling that you're helping a young up and coming business owner or entrepreneur.
