Group receives schools grant

The James and Abigail Campbell Foundation has awarded $40,000 to Junior Achievement of Hawaii for economic education programs in the Campbell/Kapolei school complex.

Students learn the basics of business, finance, personal money management and the free enterprise system from trained community volunteers who become role models in the classroom.

During the past school year, Junior Achievement volunteers conducted 50 classes for more than 1,300 students in Grades K-6 in the Leeward District.

Barbers Point Elementary School will hold Junior Achievement Day in two third-grade classes beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Students will participate in two hands-on projects: building a city and planning a restaurant.

"The generous funding from the James and Abigail Campbell Foundation has ignited the spark of understanding and inspiration for thousands of students in the Campbell/Kapolei complex," said Carolann Biederman, president of Junior Achievement.

"Junior Achievement looks forward to a successful school year reaching additional students in Leeward Oahu."
