Junior Achievement of West Kentucky recently awarded David Little, Executive Vice President of Consumer and Business Banking Operations for U.S. Bank with the Centennial Leadership Award.
In celebration of Junior Achievement’s 100th anniversary, each JA area across the country had the opportunity to select and recognize one honoree with this Centennial Leadership Award for outstanding leadership and impact in their JA area.
“David Little has demonstrated leadership not only here in West Kentucky, but in each of the cities he has been in professionally over the years, seeking out Junior Achievement and making a huge impact wherever he goes. As a JA Board Member and classroom volunteer he has been a true leader and champion of Junior Achievement programs,” said Dan Douglas, President of Junior Achievement of West Kentucky.
According to Douglas, Little is dedicated to the mission of Junior Achievement which gives young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.
“As our student impact has grown 400 percent over the past decade, our need for strategic business partners to grow program resources has increased as well,” Douglas said. “David came in at a time of need and has taken the lead role creating a culture of philanthropy and volunteerism in his workplace that has annually funded 80 classrooms and yielded 79 volunteers who have taught over 1600 hours of financial literacy and work readiness skills directly to students. It was our absolute pleasure bestowing this award to him to applaud his passion for and commitment to the Junior Achievement mission.”
