Fort Worth Volunteer

Junior Achievement volunteer, Paul Reich, Chief Estimator and Senior Project Manager at Cannon Landscape in Fort Worth is a great example of an extraordinary volunteer. A teacher who observed Paul at one of their JA Day events made the following comments.

"Paul Reich did an amazing job with my students on JA day! He came in ahead of time, while the students were out of the classroom, and met with me. He asked if there were any specific topics I would like for him to address with my kids and what some of their needs might be. He went out of his way to learn about some of the students individually and quickly made adjustments to his lesson to fit their needs.

During the lesson, he was very personable and inviting. The kids immediately responded to his energy and he earned their respect from the beginning. He had each student engaged in the lesson and made his overall lesson revolve around something the entire class could relate to: sports. He had them designing a stadium, selling merchandise, and even being the managers, coaches, and players. The students were very involved and excited about this endeavor and participated throughout the entire day.

Paul says of the experience: "This was my first time to volunteer for JA, I volunteered to help because I wanted to be involved at my daughters' school. The other reason I volunteered was to express to the teachers that parents appreciate the hard work they put into our kids and that when they need things we are here to help.
