Junior Achievement


Junior Achievement at Evans!

 On October 22nd, 2015 Evans had a Special Program at our School called “JA in a Day”. Junior Achievement has had a program at our school for many years. This year’s program was highlighted by a partnership with Ivy Tech and First Merchants Bank. Mrs. Kazonis chaired the event this year at Evans. Retired Teacher Mrs. McKay had started the program at Evans several years ago. The program had a volunteer from Junior Achievement come to each of the Elementary Classes to encourage entrepreneurship in our community. The students learned from the JA Staff that cities are places where people live, work, and play. They also learned about how businesses make money and how people spend money in cities. Junior Achievement’s mission is to empower young people to own their economic success.
