JA Recognizes Top Volunteers and Educators

If you’re a friend of Junior Achievement of Lincoln, hopefully you’ve gotten the message that we appreciate you! Everything we do relies on partnerships– between our volunteers and educators, between the business community and our schools, between donors and the classrooms they sponsor. We try to say “Thank You!” as often as we can, but once a year we to do it in a more personal way through our annual awards luncheon. It’s the day when we get to recognize those individuals who have gone above and beyond for our students and our mission.

On Tuesday, June 23rd, we got to have all those wonderful people in one room so we could honor them. We offer our gratitude and congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
