National Junior Achievers

This was the beginning of our number one National Thrust to implement a strategic plan to encourage Youth (NJA) from the ages of 6 to 12 to strive for excellence, maintain high morale and ethical standards, and to make contributions in career fields of their choice.  The format to organize and develop the Constitutional By-Laws and the Handbook of the Junior Achievers was utilized from the Youth Achievers by Achievers Mildred Woodson (Missouri City Chapter), Beatrice Mayes (Houston Chapter), Mary Guidry (Houston Chapter) and Shirley Hudson (Galena Park Houston Metroplex Chapter).  Achievers who planned the first National Junior Achiever conference July 16-20, 1997, in Fort Worth, Texas with the Theme: “Striving to Make the Impossible, Possibleï” were Harriet Streeter, Youth Director (Houston Chapter), Shirley Hudson-Bell (Galena Park Houston Metroplex Chapter), Pamela Smith (Houston Northwest), and Deborah Powers (Galena Park Houston Metroplex Chapter).  The Acting South Central Region Junior President, Toryn Johnson (Galena Park Houston Metroplex Chapter) was appointed the Presiding Officer for CON-WOA 1997.
