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.
