JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT OF TAMPA BAY RECEIVES NATIONAL HONOR FOR TOP PERFORMANCE

 

 

Tampa, FL—Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay has been awarded one of Junior Achievement USA®’s (JA USA) highest honors: the Five Star Award. The purpose of the Star Award is to recognize staff and boards of JA Areas that meet Junior Achievement’s national standards in operational efficiency and through strong representation of the JA brand. Recipients must demonstrate growth in student impact and superior fiscal performance. Achievement against these criteria is certified through JA USA and audited financial statements.

 

Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, which serves more than 94,000 students throughout Tampa Bay region was presented with the award on July 22, 2015, at the Junior Achievement USA National Leadership Conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

 

“These Star Award winners represent the best Junior Achievement has to offer,” said Jack E. Kosakowski, president and CEO of Junior Achievement USA. “They set the standard by which Junior Achievement’s success is measured at the local level. Their commitment and dedication to young people is reflected in their achieving this honor.”

 

As an organization, Junior Achievement understands that its effectiveness depends on how well JA Areas deliver the organization’s financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship programs in local communities.

 

“We are thrilled to receive the Five Star Award,” said Judy Genshaft, Chair of Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay. “We thank our more than 9,500 classroom volunteers and corporate partners who joined with our board of directors and staff to empower thousands of young people to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.”

 

This is the twenty-seventh consecutive year of program growth for the Junior Achievement franchise in the Tampa Bay region which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
