Congratulations to Lori Jacob on Winning the 2015 Charles R. Hook Award!

Lori Jacob, president of Junior Achievement of Greater St. Louis, is the 2015 recipient of the Junior Achievement USA Charles R. Hook Award. The annual accolade is given to a JA Area president who demonstrates superior results in growth and development of Junior Achievement. Jacob received the award at the Junior Achievement USA National Leadership Conference in St. Louis, Mo., on July 23, 2015. She was chosen over three other finalists for the national award.

"Lori's achievements are a great example for all JA leaders to follow as the organization moves forward, empowering students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world," said Jack E. Kosakowski, president, and CEO of JA USA. "Lori exemplifies the Junior Achievement mission and she has worked tirelessly to ensure the success and growth of this organization. We are proud to recognize her with this award."

The Hook Award is named after Charles R. Hook, who served as president and chairman of Junior Achievement during the 1940's and 1950's. Under Hook's leadership, Junior Achievement grew from a regional program in the northeastern United States into a national organization.
