Great support, turnout, and student speakers!
We hosted our first Area Board of Directors Meeting of the new year on Tuesday, January 15th at the Union League Club of Chicago.
Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder, is Chairman of our Major Gifts Campaign this year and provided us with an update on the giving campaign.
Leslie Tieszen, Senior Manager of Community Affairs at Capital One presented JA with a generous check for $106,000. Capital One is also sponsoring the launch of JA’s Finance Park Virtual, as well as JA’s Titan Competition this spring.
Christine Mikel, who is a JA classroom volunteer and the Director of Community Outreach for DeVry, spoke at the meeting. Seventh grade students, Sascha Chau and Preston Harden from Courtenay Language Arts Center Elementary (which is a Whole School sponsored by DeVry in Chicago) also presented before the board.
Thank you to all attendees, supporters, and our fantastic board members for making the day great!
