For her dedication to her students and her partnership with JA, which has brought our programs to every student in her school for the past four years… we are excited to announce Heidi Brooks, Principal at the George H. Potter School in Dartmouth as our JA Supporter of the Week!
Heidi is dedicated to her students and wants to prepare them to succeed academically and in life. By partnering with JA at the George H Potter School, she has been eager to have her students learn important life-long financial literacy lessons such as wants versus needs and the role that finances play across the community. She has also built tremendous relationships with JA volunteers from across the region that are thrilled for the opportunity to work with the outstanding teachers and students at the Potter School each year.
“Heidi Brooks is such a strong advocate of JA’s mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. From the beginning, Heidi understood the benefit of having the entire school enrolled in JA programs. To that end, she has worked personally with all the volunteers to ensure that the schedule meets not only the school’s needs, but the volunteers’ needs as well. The George H. Potter School and Junior Achievement are fortunate to have Heidi Brooks in our corner.” – Elaine Meredith, JA Program Director
In addition to partnering with JA to bring our programs to all of her students at the Potter School in recent years, Heidi has also been an advocate and helpful partner in expanding JA’s free financial literacy, career readiness and entrepreneurship programs to additional local schools. With deep gratitude for all that Heidi has done to partner with JA and improve our community, we are proud to honor her as our JA Supporter of the Week!
