JA's Long-Lasting Impact

Original Story from Junior Achievement of Kansas, Wichita District

Aggie, a longtime JA volunteer of Meritrust Credit Union, recently learned how long-lasting the positive impact of JA can be. Her oldest daughter, a seventh grader, was cheering at a football game. As Aggie watched Madison cheer, she kept thinking that one of the other cheerleaders looked really familiar. At halftime, Aggie walked up to her daughter and the cheerleaders.

"I know you!" said Bailey, the familiar-looking girl. Aggie was Bailey's JA volunteer when she was in first grade at Bostic Elementary, the very first school where Aggie started her JA volunteering. Bailey told Madison that Aggie had been an awesome volunteer. Aggie was so touched that six years later, that little first grader she taught for such a brief period of time would remember her.

"You volunteer and you wonder if you're really making a difference. Last night reinforced my passion for Junior Achievement, knowing that I am making a difference in these young lives," Aggie said.
