Volunteer Soars with Junior Achievement

This JA Feel Good Moment comes from an American Airlines employee that volunteered through Junior Achievement of Dallas, Inc.

“Thank you for the message. I wanted to tell you thank you for coordinating and go ahead and give you my feedback because yesterday really made an impact on me.

When Crystal and I came to pick up the information I was very intimidated. The days leading up to it, I really wanted to back out with whatever excuse I could find. Luckily I didn’t. Yesterday was truly a highlight of my career with AAG. Being able to deliver information to those kids and seeing how grateful they were for us to be there truly made me feel like a better person. It is amazing how being there for just a few hours can really get you attached to kids and see how much of an influence you have.

I will be forever in debt to the opportunity given to me yesterday and I look forward to it each year because I will do it as long as it is offered.  Thanks again for the opportunity.”
