Published: Wednesday, 10 Feb 2021
For his outstanding support of our JA IRONMAN Golf Championship and for his dedication to bringing more JA programs to students across the region … we are excited to announce Eric Carlson of Rockland Trust as our JA Supporter of the Week!
Eric raises thousands of dollars every year for the JA IRONMAN Golf Championship, earning the prestigious IRONMAN Award several times for raising the most funds as an individual. This annual event helps keep everything Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts does 100% free for schools and students.
Eric has also served as a volunteer Business Mentor for the JA Titan Business Challenge, sharing his business expertise and providing guidance as students compete in teams using an online interactive business simulator. Each year this event brings together more than 200 high school students from across Southern Massachusetts, giving them the opportunity to learn from some of the region’s top business leaders and compete for important scholarship awards that can help make a higher education possible.
As First Vice President, Commercial Loan Officer for Rockland Trust, Eric’s support has helped strengthen and grow the long-standing partnership between Rockland Trust and JA. Eric has also represented Rockland Trust by serving on Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ Board of Directors.
“Eric’s support of our JA IRONMAN Golf Championship has been so important to the success of this event and our organization over the years. In addition to raising thousands of dollars to help bring JA’s free financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship programs to students across the region, Eric has helped bring JA’s mission to life by serving as a volunteer himself. We’re so grateful for everything Eric does to support JA!” – Jeffrey Pelletier, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts President
With deep gratitude for his support of Junior Achievement’s programs and events, we are proud to honor Eric Carlson as our JA Supporter of the Week!
