About JA Rising Star

Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast spotlights students who have taken, or who are currently enrolled, in a JA program. The Junior Achievement's Rising Star program was created in partnership with WJNO’s Brian Mudd and the iHeartMedia Inc. family. Students who exemplify the values of JA, show true entrepreneurial spirit, demonstrate leadership skills or provide service to their communities.
