Lemont’s Junior Achievement organization annually builds a business from scratch. A student-led board creates a product, sells stock in the company and markets the product, with a goal of reaping dividends for its shareholders.
This year’s Junior Achievement board includes seniors Andrew Kiel (Team Leader of Supply Chain), Lydia Pelen (Co-Team Leader of Finance), Nathan Tilly (President) and Natalia Zagata (Team Leader of Marketing), and juniors Jovana Maksimovich (Team Leader of Customer Service & Sales) and Milena Maksimovich (Co-Team Leader of Finance).
Established in 1919, Junior Achievement is an educational nonprofit organization that brings financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs into classrooms from kindergarten through high school. Junior Achievement of Chicago is the largest of the organization’s offices in the United States. Its programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world – enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
Lemont High School’s Junior Achievement entries have earned nine Chicagoland “Company of the Year” accolades in the last 15 years, including its most recent victory in 2023.
