To the editor,

Our Junior Achievement team values the past support we’ve received as we served area youth during the past school year.

Thank you students – 5,893 of you – for your engagement while you learned to make personal finance, career readiness and entrepreneurial choices. We’re here to help you become tomorrow’s leaders.

Thank you teachers – from 308 classrooms in 65 schools where Junior Achievement lessons were taught. It’s a privilege spending time with your students. We’re here to help you grow tomorrow’s leaders.

Thank you volunteers – 239 of you – for delivering 33,201 instructional contact hours to students in Dane, Dodge, Iowa, Jefferson and Sauk Counties. We’re here to help you inspire tomorrow’s leaders.

Thank you business leaders – from 102 companies who made donations and encouraged your employees to volunteer. We’re here to help you develop tomorrow’s leaders.

Our goal for the upcoming 2019-20 school year is to reach 6,100 students. We’ll accomplish that goal with your continued support. If you’d like to volunteer or donate, click “Get Involved” at
