Proving that it’s never to soon to teach basic and important business concepts like budgeting, organizing, and saving money, Gardner-Webb’s ENACTUS Club has taken on the role as lead sponsor for an educational program known as Junior Achievement (JA) for elementary students in the Cleveland County, N.C., school system. “We have made the initial contact with schools and teachers about teaching financial literacy using JA materials,” said Dr. Denise Smith, assistant professor of Business Administration for the Godbold School of Business at GWU, who serves as ENACTUS faculty advisor. “Springmore Elementary will be the first site for the program and Superintendent (of Cleveland County Schools) Dr. Bruce Boyles has given his approval.”
