Enhance the education for our young students.
Raise awareness and provide support for the students of the Cashiers area.
A few of the initial accomplishments are:
Designed and created school celebration banners, building community pride.
Assisted in creating a generic scholarship application form to be used by area donor organizations
Connect schools websites to the Cashiers Chamber of Commerce.
The task force created three focus areas for 2020 but were interrupted by the coronavirus. These initiatives will continue to be worked on:
Build a Junior Achievement program with Blue Ridge School
Create a student career summit convention for 8th, 9th and 10th graders at Blue Ridge School and Summit Charter School. The ones we did in 2019 and 2022 were huge successes! Our next one will be held April 25, 2023 at the Country Club of Sapphire Valley.
Distribute the brochure we created to all Realtors explaining the diversity of education offerings. See brochure here.
Junior Achievement is the recognized leader in "empowering young people to own their economic success" through volunteer-led, experiential learning.
