General Motors Presents Junior Achievement with $15,000 Grant



5,000 grant from General Motors. The GM Community Grants Program will help Junior Achievement continue to provide essential programs on STEM education and community development to K-12 students throughout South Central Kentucky during the 2021-2022 academic year.

“Junior Achievement students, specifically those who are at-risk and those who feel inadequate to pursue STEM careers, will directly benefit from the GM Community Grants Program,” said Junior Achievement President Allie Sharp.

“Thanks to General Motors, many local students will learn about local STEM initiatives and will foster a greater sense of community that benefits future generations.”

Through a greater understanding of local career options and employer expectations, Junior Achievement creates a pipeline of educated, skilled, and talented employees for companies in need of productive and successful team members within a global economy.
