Our very own Carol Jackson received the 2021 Distinguished Alumni Award. The mission of JA’s Spirit of Enterprise dinner and award ceremony is to recognize and honor those individuals and organizations from Western Pennsylvania who have made, or are positioned to make outstanding contributions to the business, social and cultural assets of this area.

Junior Achievement (JA) of Western Pennsylvania’s volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster workforce development, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential. JA helps students realize that the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow. JA’s unique, volunteer delivered programs, show them all of the possibilities that lay before them.
