Granger head of Jr. Achievement

Junior Achievement has named Linda Granger as coordinator for Madison County. 

Granger’s experience includes 15 years working in sales, sales technology and retail category management for General Mills. Her most recent employment has been as a substitute teacher with London City Schools.

“JA’s programs give young people the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century economy. I will work hard to ensure that JA continues to grow and reach more students in Madison County,” Granger said.

She continued, “The only way an economy can compete and thrive is if it has a strong community work force. JA prepares students as young as kindergarteners to begin to understand their local economy, how to manage income and to begin to participate in not only a local, but more global way of thinking.”
