Jones Walker Participates in Junior Achievement
February 16, 2011

Jones Walker assembled a team of volunteers who presented at the Junior Achievement (JA) curriculum in various schools throughout New Orleans. This year, 28 Jones Walker personnel volunteered to teach the Junior Achievement curriculum to students in grades K-7 at Lafayette Academy on January 14, 2011. Additionally, the firm has been an active sponsor of various Junior Achievement events and Rudolph R. Ramelli currently serves as a member of JA's Board of Directors.

This year, the firm combined its annual JA day with an effort to fill the seats at the Hornet's games. Thanks to Jones Walker, a donation of 336 Hornets tickets was made to Lafayette Academy. Each of the 168 sixth and seventh graders at Lafayette Academy were presented with two tickets to the Hornets vs. Spurs game on January 22, 2011, in appreciation of their completion of the Junior Achievement program. Mascot Hugo was in attendance at the presentation.
