Junior Achievement of Maine helps teach students the financial and business skills they'll need to succeed as adults...

They honored members of the business community who help with that mission.

Jack Quirk, Laurie Lachance and Gregory Dufour were inducted into the Maine Business Hall of Fame for not only what they've achieved professionally, but also for the examples they've set.

The organization impacted nearly 14-thousand Maine students last year and is working hard to see that number grow in the years to come.

"Our mission is to aspire and prepare kids to own their economic success," said Michelle Anderson, JA's President. "So, we go into classrooms across the state and we bring business volunteers that teach the real world skills that you need become an adult. So, things like financial literacy, workforce readiness skills an entrepreneurship. Really our mission is to bridge the gap between the Business community and education, so kids see the relevance in their education."

5th graders from Mt. View Elementary were also in attendance and talked about the Junior Achievement program.
