Our Junior Achievement Rising Star of the Week is Michael Gunter, a senior at Royal Palm Beach High School.
He is in the National Honor Society and a member of the school's Key Club among other things.
Michael was nominated because he ranks among the top 4 percent of his class and helped his school place second in an engineering competition.
He also received the JA Waste Management scholarship.
Michael tells us his career goals lead to "either database administration or something related to information techonology, where I can apply my skills in development of applications to help improve productivity for businesses and employees alike."
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.
