The 2016-2017 school year has come to a close, and now that we’ve had a chance to catch our breath and look back we can definitively say– wow, what a year it was!
Thanks to the tireless work of our volunteers, the generosity of our supporters, the dedication of our board members and friends, and the teachers who welcome us into their classrooms, this was yet another record year for JA of Lincoln. Our community volunteers took the JA curriculum into 1,374 classrooms, which represents an 8% increase over the year before. We think that’s something to be proud of!
Through all those classrooms and our various programs, JA of Lincoln impacted 28,746 students this year, which is also a record. Every year, we wonder if we’ll really be able to break our own records again, reaching even more students with our messages of financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and business ethics. Each year, we set the goal of “more students than ever before.” And each year, we’re able to meet those goals because of our amazing community of people who care deeply about the success of our students.
What can we say, other than THANK YOU? Thank you for another amazing year. Thank you for caring about our students. Thank you for giving your time and resources to help ensure their success. Here’s to another year of “more than ever before!”
