Nassau, The Bahamas - BTC’s Grand Bahama Junior Achievement company, “BTC B.O.S.S.” (Bold Outstanding Successful Students) took top awards at the local J.A. Banquet. J.A. President, Ketora Clarke was awarded Most Distinguished Achiever and Most Outstanding President.

Ketora Clarke commented, “This program was truly a blessing for me this year. I placed third in the speech competition, I’ve met so many people, I got top grades in the J.A. exam and I was awarded President of the Year and Most Distinguished Achiever! I can truly say that I've gained a lot in just this one year. I will always have BTC in my heart. I absolutely love my J.A. company, my extraordinary advisors and this program. Hopefully if God's willing, I will be an advisor and give back because I've reaped my rewards and would love to see others experience the same.”

We believe that our investment in J.A. over the last forty years continues to pay its dividends as we help to cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit amongst our youth.”
