For his dedication to supporting JA’s mission through leadership, volunteerism, and fundraising … we are excited to announce JA Board Member Patrick Walsh, owner of Walsh Title & Closing, as our JA Supporter of the Week!
As a member of Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ Board of Directors, Pat helps bring JA’s free financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship education programs to thousands of students across the region each year.
Pat is a member of the JA Titan Business Challenge Committee, helping to plan and execute Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ largest annual student event. Each year more than 200 students from across the region come together at UMass Dartmouth to participate in a dynamic learning experience where they compete in teams using the interactive business simulator JA Titan, making decisions as CEO of their own company. The event provides opportunities for students to network with professionals and other students, hear from some of the region’s top business leaders, and compete for important scholarship awards that can help make a higher education possible. Pat has also served as a volunteer Business Mentor for this event, sharing business advice as he helps guide students through the competition.
In addition to supporting JA through leadership and volunteerism, Pat supports fundraising events which help keep everything Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts does 100% free for students and schools. He is a participant of the annual JA IRONMAN Golf Championship, and his company Walsh Title & Closing is a sponsor for the event. Walsh Title & Closing is also an Event Sponsor for the JA Titan Business Challenge.
“Pat is a great supporter of Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts. His contributions as a board member, volunteer, and fundraiser have had a major impact on our organization. We’re so thankful for everything Pat and his company Walsh Title & Closing do for JA and our community!” – Jeffrey Pelletier, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts President
With deep gratitude for all that he does to support JA’s mission, we are proud to honor Patrick Walsh as our JA Supporter of the Week!
