On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Junior Achievement of New York was thrilled to honor three outstanding champions at the annual Leadership Awards Gala. Scott Gerber, The Community Company and Young Entrepreneur Council, was presented with the Young Innovators Award, and Rod Martin, Voya, was honored with the Leadership Award. The 2018 Student of the Year Award was also presented to Josue Quintero, a senior at Brooklyn Preparatory High School. This signature fundraising event raised over $713,000 for the kids of JA New York to receive hands-on programming that inspire, empower, and prepare them for a successful future.
