Originally posted July 30, and back-dated July 19
Junior Achievement (JA) of Oklahoma students have been invited to the JA Company of the Year national championships at the Junior Achievement National Student Leadership Summit at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
The students will spend five days, July 30th through August 3rd, in the nation's capital meeting and competing with other students from across the United States.
In the JA Company Program, students start a real business and create and market products under the mentorship of a volunteer from the local business community.
Becca Thompson and Lauren Rutherford, the Union students going, formed the business Simply Charming.
"My J-A company colleagues and I are thrilled to represent Junior Achievement of Oklahoma at the national finals," said Miss Thompson. "We look forward to meeting other J-A students from all over the country and learning from them during the competition."
Jenny Kwun and Rachael Davis are also part of the company but will not be attending the competition.
