The Burr team loves any opportunity to get involved in the community. Woody Priest, owner and President of Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows has been participating in the Junior Achievement program individually for years. This year, we are thrilled that our friends at THRIVE joined in the effort to educate the young. As a member of THRIVE, the young emerging leaders group based in Bridgeport, CT, we were able to team up with other business leaders throughout the Greater Bridgeport Region, to give back by teaching Junior Achievement in local schools.
Junior Achievement is the only nationwide organization dedicated to educating students K-12 on what it means to be an entrepreneur. This program uses hands-on classroom activities to teach economic independence, work readiness, and financial responsibility. Each workshop promotes values such as integrity, excellence, teamwork, and passion, as JA strives to shape the leaders of tomorrow. Each year we participate in this program it is so rewarding! Thank you THRIVE for joining us in this amazing effort and thank you to the local schools who let us spend the day!
