Sometimes the sweetest things in life come with hard work.
Earlier this summer that’s exactly what the 2nd graders at Lost River Elementary realized as they dove into Junior Achievement’s lesson program, “JA Our Community.”
Students received a hands-on approach with this lesson taught by JA volunteer Les Stevens, Senior Resource Supply Chain Leader at Country Oven Bakery. The program captivated the students with engaging topics ranging from work-readiness, how local businesses work to how to contribute to a community’s success.
Stevens stated, “This is not about me, it is about giving back to make a positive change. If we all pick up our corner in the community we will see a positive change.”
To explore the fundamentals of production methods, business decision making, and the way money flows through an economy Stevens had the students “work” in the donut shop during the third session of their JA Our Community program.
From the hair nets to the gloves, the authentic donut experience changed the community of Bowling Green Kentucky for the sweeter.
