We have a star in our midst!
We are so proud to announce that Jessica States, JA of Lincoln’s Senior Director of Programs and Events, was honored with the 2015 JA USA Rising Star award. It was awarded to only four JA associates in the entire nation, so Jessica is in very elite company!
The award recognizes associates who have shown leadership within their JA community and performed their duties at the highest level. Recipients are mid-level staff members who are emerging leaders within the organization, and who demonstrate outstanding, measurable success in executing their responsibilities.
The award was presented at Junior Achievement USA’s National Leadership Conference in St. Louis on July 23. Jack E. Kosakowski, president and CEO of Junior Achievement USA said that Jessica and her fellow award recipients “all bring enthusiasm, dedication and passion to advancing the JA mission.”
We couldn’t agree more! Jessica is a vital part of our growth and success, and we are so happy she received this well-deserved honor. Congratulations, Jess!
