Let the games begin….!Posted on December 13th, 2011 No comments
The 2012 Jim ‘N Nick’s Junior Achievement Winter Bowling Classic has officaially kicked-off and we’re moving with great momentum! We had a fantastic luncheon on December 2nd. The luncheon was graciously hosted by Samford University; big thanks to our Samford board member Dr. Howard Finch! We loved using the Pete Hanna Center for this event.
The luncheon began with a motivating talk from our Bowling Classic Chairman, Mr. Harry Dinken of Altec Industries. Harry did a great job sharing his thoughts on JA & energizing coordinators to do their best for our 25th Anniversary year!We had a great turn out of coordinators that have been supporting JA for years & a handful of newbies eager to rally the troops & represent their organizations.A motivating opening speaker, a delicious lunch, laughs & and quick ‘how to’ talk…what else could you ask for? Well, how about a fantastically, inspiring message from one of our very own JA students. Ms. Kiera Hood, a senior at Fairfield Highschool, joined us for Kick-Off to share her Junior Achievement experience. She discussed the highlights she leared from JA curriculum, how it will impact her future decision making and why the coordinators should continue to do their very best to make a difference for students just like her. Stay tuned for my next post, I’m going to upload the video of Kiera speaking to share with this lovely bowling community!
