With the support of the business community, the Vermillion School District, and JA volunteers, the Junior Achievement of Vermillion board is proud to announce that more than 650 Vermillion students were impacted with JA programing during the 2012-2013 school year

During the 2012-2013 school year, more than 190 elementary students were impacted with traditional JA programs, more than 80 eighth-grade students received the JA America Works program, and more than 350 Vermillion High School students participated in the JA Excelling through Ethics program.
