Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain is thrilled to welcome Kelly Latterman as its new District Manager for Routt County. A Steamboat resident, Latterman will work directly with local schools and oversee Junior Achievement’s education programming, fundraising, events, and volunteer recruitment initiatives in Routt County.
Started in Routt County just four years ago, JA now delivers programming for 1,700 local students each year with plans to serve more schools and more grades in the coming years.
Latterman previously served as the Co-Executive Director at Perry Mansfield Performing Arts School. She also serves on the Steamboat Springs School District Board, the Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services Board (BOCES), and the UC Health Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation Board.
“My personal and professional passion is education. As a classroom volunteer for Junior Achievement at Soda Creek Elementary, I experienced first-hand how our local students embrace the chance to learn from volunteers in the business community,” said Latterman.
Steamboat Springs Middle School teacher Marco Cuevas added, “Our students love JA for the invaluable opportunity to learn about business and finance from amazing community volunteers. Our teachers have all embraced JA for playing such a vital role in getting our kids ready for the real world.”
