JA Supporter of the Week: Graham Chapman
Published: Thursday, 19 Nov 2020
For his leadership in spreading financial literacy education by building JA partnerships across the Northeast, and for his dedication to supporting local students as a JA volunteer himself … we are excited to announce Graham Chapman of Santander Bank as our JA Supporter of the Week!
Thanks to Graham’s outstanding efforts to secure the time and talent of his community-minded colleagues at Santander Bank, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts has been able to dramatically expand the number of schools and students we serve across the region. Graham has recruited over 100 volunteers to teach JA programs, sharing their financial expertise on critically important topics such as how to earn and manage money, as well as increasing their understanding of the value of educational attainment in achieving their goals. He also demonstrates his strong commitment to serving local students and our community by eagerly volunteering to teach JA programs himself.
Graham’s leadership in this multi-faceted partnership between Santander Bank and Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts extends beyond the classroom, as he and his colleagues have supported JA through our Bowling and Golf events which help expand the reach of our programs and keep everything we do 100% free for students and schools.
“Graham has been a game-changing partner for our organization and our ability to advance financial literacy education across Southern Massachusetts. He is always eager to know what the community needs and how he and his team at Santander Bank can help. Graham’s above and beyond efforts have directly contributed to our ability to serve more local schools and change more local lives for the better. We greatly value our partnership with Santander Bank and are continuously appreciative of Graham’s efforts at the helm of this collaboration on behalf of our community!” – Jeff Pelletier, President, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts
With deep gratitude for Graham’s commitment to strengthening JA and advancing financial literacy education across Southern Massachusetts and beyond, we are proud to honor him as our JA Supporter of the Week!
