CLEVELAND—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented a commendation to Junior Achievement of Cleveland honoring them for 75 years of cultivating children in Northeast Ohio. Junior Achievement (JA) is a volunteer-delivered educational charity which strives to instill within young people an appreciation and understanding for market-based economics and entrepreneurship.

“I have volunteered for many years teaching the Junior Achievement programs,” said Rep. Anielski. “JA’s goal is to inspire our youth, from kindergarten through 12th grade, in preparing students to succeed in reaching their potential through fostering work-readiness and financial literacy skills through experiential learning.”

Junior Achievement programs teach students about a variety of subjects, including civics, the principles of business, entrepreneurship and economics. Volunteers go to classrooms and participate in lectures and activities, which engage the students in these essential principles.

“During our 75 years of service, Junior Achievement of Greater Cleveland has impacted over one million students,” said Greg Perelka, Chairman of the Junior Achievement Board of Directors. “By providing financial literacy, entrepreneurship and career readiness educational programs, we aim to help our future leaders develop important life skills. We are so grateful to Rep. Anielski for the honor of a Letter of Commendation from the State of Ohio.”
