The Town of Easton, Maryland proclaimed April 2018 “Junior Achievement Financial Literacy Month” in recognition of the financial literacy education efforts of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore, (JA). JA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship education to kindergarten-12th grade students at no cost to the schools. At Monday night’s Town Council meeting, Councilwoman Megan Cook presented the proclamation to JA board chair Laura Heikes of Shore United Bank, and board members George Koste of Maryland Capital Enterprises, and Talli Oxnam of Wye Trust in honor of Financial Literacy Month and JA’s work in promoting the financial well-being of Easton’s citizens.
