Attorney Jessica Shoulders has joined the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky.

Junior Achievement gives young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. Corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world—enhancing the relevance of their class- room learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
