Community advocate and Hardin Valley Planning Advocates director Kim Frazier has been tapped to emcee the Junior Achievement Miss Business Interactive Virtual Experience from 9 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 20.
The event, at which Frazier also will serve as kickoff speaker, “affords highly recommended female high school seniors from across East Tennessee the opportunity to enhance their personal growth, high level networking opportunities and to build mentoring relationships with top area female business leaders,” according to a press release.
Junior Achievement of East Tennessee, in partnership with local businesses and education partners, is presenting the event.
“Typically, in person, this unique one-day event has gone virtual this year, but still fills an important gap for young women who are interested in or have an aptitude for business or leadership, but may not have the mentors or guidance needed to help them pursue their dreams,” the organization’s press release stated.
“Since 1969, Junior Achievement of East Tennessee has inspired the next generation to be financially capable, equipped with the tools to solve problems creatively, effectively manage risk, and welcome opportunity,” i’s press release continued. “Through our experiential financial literacy, work readiness, entrepreneurship K-12 programs and capstone experiences taught by volunteer role models from the community, we inspire the next generation to answer the demands of the 21st century economy with ‘I Can.’
“During the 2019 -2020 school year, JA of East Tennessee delivered programs to over 20,000 K-12 students throughout the region. In the last decade, Junior Achievement of East Tennessee has impacted the lives of more than 225,000 young people across a 17-county service region.”
