Local Students Awarded JA Scholarships

With the end of the school year in sight, high school seniors are preparing for a lot of new: schools, cities, friends, and jobs. Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio (JANCO) is proud to partner with graduates as they take their first steps into the future.

Thanks to generous supporters, the Richard & Ruth Niemiec Scholarship, the Dave Rowekamp, Wooster Brush Company Memorial Scholarship, and the JA of North Central Ohio Scholarship were offered this year to graduating seniors with previous JA program involvement. Students shared future goals and the impact of JA’s financial- and career-focused curriculum on these plans.

“We are impressed with the class of 2021,” said Lori McCleese, President. “Their resilience and ability to adapt to challenges is inspiring. It is an honor to celebrate the outstanding achievements of seniors and to be a part of their unique academic journeys. All the recipients highlighted what it means to be enterprising, civic-minded individuals in their high school careers and extracurricular activities. In short, they exemplify what Junior Achievement programs strive to foster.”
