Junior Achievement runs Biz Town, a fantastic place for kids in middle and high school to go and learn about running everyday finances. Each year Junior Achievement finds volunteers to visit schools to help prepare the children for their Biz Town experience. This year volunteers helped middle school students learn how to write checks and keep a check book. Sean and Annette Clark both volunteered time to help with the check book teachings.
