Junior Achievement (JA) of Cayman Brac, founders of the JA company Sea Beezes Ltd., recently received a CI$1,000 donation from its sponsor, Cayman National Bank.

JA chief advisor Judith Nye said that the sponsors who assist Junior Achievement are important not only for creating the chapter but by ensuring success in JA events.

“We are very thankful for organizations that make a contribution to the education of our youth,” she said.

Cayman Brac´s Junior Achievement club has been busy setting up the corporation, electing officers, deciding on staff, as well as production and sales of JA products.

“So far we have been able to cover our material costs as well as some of our wages, salaries and commissions,” said Ms Nye. “We have 26 Junior Achievers working on Sea Breezes Ltd and our products are wind chimes made of glass, shells and beautiful pieces of driftwood.”

Due to their active public relations effort, several articles regarding the Junior Achievement company were published in 2009, resulting in additional sales.

“We were able to sell most of our inventory,” she said, “and are therefore looking forward to another successful and profitable year. Our thanks go to our sponsors and the community for their continued support.”
