Stuart R. Morris Esq., CPA, B.C.S., founding partner of Morris Law Group, with offices in Boca Raton, Aventura, Weston and West Palm Beach, recently received an award for his significant contributions serving on the board of directors of and volunteering for Junior Achievement of South Florida (JA) for nearly 15 years.
The annual Marti Huizenga Roll Up Your Sleeves Awards, named for South Florida philanthropist Marti Huizenga, who worked tirelessly for a variety of charitable organizations, recognizes some of JA’s outstanding volunteers for their work on behalf of the local organization. Mr. Morris was named “Board Member of the Year” at the awards ceremony earlier this month.
JA provides real-world training and education to young people about financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness. It’s their mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. JA of South Florida has more than 7,000 dedicated volunteers who enrich the lives of 50,000 students in Broward and south Palm Beach counties.
According to Mr. Morris, who also serves as chairman of the JA of South Florida Charitable Foundation, “I appreciate being recognized. I roll up my sleeves for JA because I truly believe in the mission. It is critical to help educate our young people in work readiness, entrepreneurship and fiscal responsibility.” Watch Mr. Morris's acceptance speech here.
The partners and staff of Morris Law Group and Elder Law Associates PA have been volunteering at JA for the last seven years and participate in the annual JA Bowl-A-Thon to raise funds for the organization. The attorneys and staff members recently spent the day volunteering at JA’s Finance Park, assisting and mentoring local eighth graders from Silver Lakes Middle School as they learned some real-world lessons on managing their income, expenses, savings and credit.
About JA Finance Park
At the Patten Family Foundation JA Finance Park, more than 20,000 eighth grade students from Broward and south Palm Beach counties each year learn how financial decisions will impact their lives. These include expenses related to family health care, real estate and home improvements, automobiles, insurance, entertainment, education, and purchasing items, such as clothing, furniture and groceries. Prior to visiting JA Finance Park, students engage in a comprehensive classroom curriculum that teaches them about finances, careers, income, expenses, savings and credit. This program helps students recognize that their education decisions affect their career options and have an impact on their potential income and quality of life. At the end of the classroom instruction, students visit JA Finance Park and put what they learned into action by managing a real-world-inspired personal budget based on local careers in a simulated city. Students are guided by trained volunteers.
