Attorneys teach for Junior Achievement

by Mandy Hicks

Five ELPO attorneys will teach classes at McNeill Elementary School on behalf of Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky on Friday, March 28. The attorneys received curriculum from Junior Achievement staff and will lead the students through a day-long unit that teaches students the importance of community and basic concepts of free enterprise.

The attorneys who are teaching the classes are Regina JacksonSamantha Propp, Sarah Jarboe, Heather Coleman and Jane Lyle Hord.

Regina Jackson serves on the board of Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky, which she has done for almost a decade. She’s taught in classrooms for several years to assist with the JA curriculum. 

This marks the second year that ELPO attorneys have participated in JA in a Day, part of a new concept JA piloted for the 2012-2013 school year, which involved volunteers teaching for an entire day. The concept worked well for students, teachers and for ELPO last year, so the attorneys were invited to teach again this year.
