Staff Report

Junior Achievement of the Roaring Fork Valley recently received a grant of $2,500 from US Bank. Clayton Collier, president of the Glenwood Springs branch, presented the check to Robin Tolan, district manager for Junior Achievement.

“This is a great program that US Bank is proud to support at a local and national level,” said Collier. “We’re grateful to John Stott, a former president, who got us started with the local program several years ago.”

US Bank was the first major grantor that gave Junior Achievement its start in the Roaring Fork Valley.

Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization funded by the local community whose purpose is to inspire students in both public and private schools to value free enterprise through classes taught by community volunteers.
