In a ballroom teeming with both business leaders and students, Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) last night inducted three new laureates into its New Jersey Business Hall of Fame: Michellene Davis, Esq., executive vice president, chief corporate affairs officer at RWJBarnabas Health; Bernie Flynn, retired president and CEO of NJM Insurance Group; and former Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno (now a partner at the law firm Connell Foley). The event was held at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick.
Highlighting the synergies between corporate/community volunteers and Junior Achievement students, Event Chair John Cusano, Jr., of Accenture, told the audience, “JA students are truly different, and differentiated. And what sets them apart is all of you; you and all your companies; the time you invest; the resources you give to them; and the experiences that you share with them, especially when you are personally engaged in the programming. Because of that and the time that you spend, JA students are better communicators, collaborators, networkers, presenters, leaders – and more.”
