Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast helps students learn how to become entrepreneurs and this week's Rising Star is learning a lot about that.

Hear Jack and his mom Ellen Regnery speak about the things the fourth-grader learned while in Junior Achievement's program. 

He and some classmates designed their own business, "Divine Donuts", which would sell donuts after church on Sundays.  They did market research and put together a business plan, just as you would for a real company. 

Jack is credited for gathering enthusiasm for the JA classes amongst his classmates at St. Mark's Episcopal School. 


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.
