Our latest Junior Achievement Rising Star of the Week is 12th grader Jay Atieh, who's a member of the Global Business and Entrepreneurship program at Palm Beach Gardens High School.
Currently, he's been passing on his knowledge to second graders.
"We're teaching elementary school kids a Junior Achievement lesson about economics..."Jay has loafty goals and believes the experience he's gotten from Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches will help him achieve them.
"I want to get a job in finance. I want to be a Chief Executive Officer."
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.
