Sierra Carothers, Employee of the Month at McDonald’s Restaurants

Sierra Carothers participated in a JA Economics for Success (EFS) Program at the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club (OBGC) with McDonald’s Restaurants. The program at OBGC reaches local at-risk students who would not normally have the opportunity to benefit from the great life lessons of EFS. Sierra stood out among her fellow participants, taking full advantage of the opportunity and attending all four EFS lessons.

As a result of her dedication, the McDonald’s employee who delivered the program connected Sierra with a McDonald’s hiring manager who called her for an interview. Sierra used the interviewing tips she learned from the EFS program at the interview and got the job! Sierra was recently recognized as Employee of the Month, and she credits JA  for teaching her the important life lessons that have propelled her to attain her goals.
