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 Lauren Meyer (Co-Team Leader of Customer Service) and John Vranas (Team Leader of Management), and juniors Lydia Pelen (Team Leader of Finance), Lukas Petraitis (Co-Team Leader of Customer Service), Nathan Tilly (Team Leader of Supply Chain) and Cael Whitchurch (Team Leader of Marketing).
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 eight Chicagoland “Company of the Year” accolades in the last 14 years, including victories in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
