JA Wins Tucson Chamber’s 2018 Copper Cactus Award!

Posted in: JA Impact, JA Team, Southern Arizona

We are so proud to announce that Junior Achievement was recognized this month by the Tucson Chamber of Commerce with the 2018 Copper Cactus Award! We were selected as this year’s recipient based on exceptional leadership, culture, innovation and growth.

A special thank you to our Southern Arizona team, Chuck Zaepfel, Carolyn Gorst and Maggie Jones for their hard work!

This year’s sponsor of the nonprofit category was Tucson Electric Power. Somewhat serendipitously, the TEP representative handing out the awards was JA board member and past SAZ board chair Frank Marino – to say he was excited to give the award to JA was an understatement.
