Tampa, FL – Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay announced on Thursday, February 6, 2014, that Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandra L. Murman has been chosen from more than 187,000 U.S. volunteers to earn the organization’s premier award for volunteerism, the Bronze Leadership Award.
The purpose of the Bronze Leadership Award is to recognize JA volunteers who have performed outstanding service to Junior Achievement. By sharing their personal and professional experiences and skills with students, volunteers help students make the connection between what they learn in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life.
“Sandy Murman is a wonderful example of how one person can make such a huge difference in the lives of young people in our community,” said Richard George, president of Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay.
“The local business community has been extremely supportive of Junior Achievement’s goal of inspiring local students to succeed in the global economy,” said George. “And Commissioner Sandy Murman is a remarkable example of that spirit of generosity. In a very real way, she helps Hillsborough JA students develop financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work-readiness skills, contribute to the community and participate in the revitalization of the economy.”
Junior Achievement’s Bronze Leadership Award honors volunteer excellence. The award is presented in recognition of participation and leadership in supporting and expanding JA’s student impact, increasing resources and/or operational excellence and sustainability.
