Hamblen County

Junior Achievement BizTown Program

tnAchieves

Entrepreneur Don Rogers, of Rogers Petroleum, Inc., and the Rotary Club of Morristown A.M. sponsored early HC*EXCELL facilitated Junior Achievement programs at four Hamblen County Elementary schools. The JA BizTown program was initiated in 2010 to serve as an introduction to workforce development by strengthening student academic performance through basic business skills and knowledge application.

Today the program has grown to provide a JA BizTown Experience to all Hamblen County fifth graders. The JA BizTown Experience includes approximately twelve classroom sessions taught by fifth grade teachers and an onsite day long experience at the Junior Achievement of East Tennessee BizTown Center in Clinton, TN.

Fifth grade teachers use the JA curriculum which encompasses financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship – the “Economics of Life!” While at BizTown, students explore what they have learned through role play, run businesses, receive two pay checks, pay taxes, manage their checking accounts, vote, and much more! Approximately 850 Hamblen County fifth graders participatied last year.

The JA BizTown student elected “Mayors” and “Good Citizens” are recognized by the Hamblen County Mayor and City Mayor during their December meetings.
