JA Supporter of the Week: Robert Fregault
Published: Wednesday, 24 Feb 2021
For his dedication to Junior Achievement’s mission, his active volunteerism, and his outstanding support of our fundraising events … we are excited to announce JA Board Member Robert Fregault of Carl’s Collision Center as our JA Supporter of the Week!
Rob is a long-time member of Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ Board of Directors, and an Officer on our Executive Committee. His support for our mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy is illustrated by his commitment to helping us reach more students across the region with JA’s free financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship education programs.
He brings JA’s mission to life by volunteering to teach JA’s Classroom Programs himself, delivering countless K-12 programs to local students over the years, especially in the cities of Fall River and Attleboro.
As the parent of a SPARK Program participant, Rob has also been a tremendous supporter of this free two-year program for middle school girls focused on leadership development and entrepreneurial thinking.
Rob is a top supporter of JA’s annual “Strikes for Success” bowling fundraiser, which raises thousands of dollars each year to help keep everything Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts does 100% free for students and schools. He organizes multiple teams of family and friends to participate and has helped grow the event to include a second venue in North Attleboro.
“Rob truly believes in JA’s mission and he shows it through his leadership on our Board of Directors, his long-time volunteerism and support for our programs, and his efforts to get his whole family and community involved – from his daughter’s participation in the JA SPARK Program, to all the supporters he rallies for Strikes for Success. Rob is a great asset to our organization and we are very fortunate to have him on our Board.” – Jeffrey Pelletier, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts President
With deep gratitude for the countless ways he supports Junior Achievement, we are proud to honor Robert Fregault as our JA Supporter of the Week!
