Angelo San Segundo, Wooten Elementary School’s principal kicked off JA in a Day on April 26th by saying “We love having JA volunteers in our classrooms!”
Thanks to 3M’s generous sponsorship of JA programming at Wooten Elementary, the 500+ K-5th grade students learned hands on about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness. This year, Wooten’s JA in a Day happened to coincide with the very same week 3M was moving into a new facility so volunteers from several other firms stepped in to teach the lessons. CapitalOne Bank, Deloitte Services, A+ Federal Credit Union, TriNet, Frost Bank, and Brentwood Plastics were among the companies who provided volunteers. Truly a great community collaboration!
Principal San Segundo summed up the successful JA in a Day as follows:
“Not only are the JA Volunteers trained professionals taking time to inspire our students, but we also love showing the community the great things happening Wooten.”
