JA of Western New York Progress Report
Fall 2019 was shaping up nicely. Teachers were requesting classes, the Gala committee was developing a very special program for our May 14, 2020 milestone event, our 11th annual JA Stock Market Challenge took place on November 20, bringing 550 high school students together, and due to demand, our JA Inspire work and career-readiness expo scheduled for May 6, 2020, had been redesigned to accommodate 1,000 students, doubling 2018-19 participation. JA BowlA-Thon, our main fundraising event, had “kicked-off” and was poised to meet or exceed the prior year’s fundraising. The December board meeting was filled with positive reports.
