Junior Achievement of North Florida was chartered in 1963 and
has reached over half a million students with our financial literacy,
workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship programs. This year, trained
volunteers will reach 60,000 students in grades K-12. Thousands of
people contribute to our success. Our very successful organization
has been built on the shoulders of great people such as Bill Gay who
was instrumental in bringing JA to this area in 1963 and Harry Frisch
who also exemplifies JA's values and has been tireless in promoting and
supporting JA of North Florida. Together, Harry and Bill have positively
and continuously influenced Junior Achievement for decades. In their
honor we created the JA Lifetime ACHIEVEment Award.
 

JA ACHIEVEment Award Honorees

Harry Frisch

Harry Frisch

In 1953, Harry, wife, Lilo, and sons, Ben and Karl, immigrated to Jacksonville to be reunited with Harry's mother and stepfather. Abandoning a successful career as an auto mechanic, Harry joined his family to operate a fresh seafood store, Beaver Street Fisheries. Over 60 years, Harry has worked with four generations of his family in building the business into a half billion dollar sales company employing hundreds. Harry has generously supported countless community non-profits with his time, talent, and resources. In 2012, Harry received the Thompson S. Baker Award and then proceeded to recruit the next five Baker award recipients.

WW "Bill" Gay

Bill Gay is an institution in North Florida. His business acumen and philanthropy are in an elite arena. Bill is heavily involved in organizations that help children and donates more than money to organizations in which he believes. Bill Gay was instrumental in the founding of JA of North Florida in 1963 and he served as Chairman of the JA Board of Directors in 1973. Since then Bill has supported Junior Achievement and its mission. The 1973 JA President said that Bill Gay constantly worked to bring JA to more young people. There was a 20% growth during his tenure to 1,000 young people participating in JA companies. Bill Gay was the recipient of the 2007 Thompson S. Baker Award.
