About Junior Achievement:

Junior Achievement of Georgia (JA of Georgia) and its volunteers bridge the gap between the business and education communities by providing relevant, hands-on curriculum. The hallmark of JA is its unique use of local business volunteers who facilitate age-appropriate curriculum to K-12 students in a variety of different formats and venues. Through JA’s in-school and after-school programs, all of which focus on entrepreneurship, personal financial literacy and workforce readiness, JA of Georgia works to increase the high school graduation rate of our state’s youth while also ensuring they have the tools needed to compete in the global economy. During the 2013-2014 school year, JA of Georgia impacted more than 165,000 students statewide through six district offices located in Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Dalton, Gainesville and Savannah.

About Johnathon Scott Barrett http://www.johnathonscottbarrett.com/

Professionally, Johnathon, a Certified Public Accountant, began his career in the area of business, and moved into the arena of nonprofit management in the late 1990s. He currently serves as vice-president of statewide operations for Junior Achievement of Georgia. Through his adult life, Johnathon has also lent his time and talents to a number of worthwhile projects, and has served on the boards of numerous organizations, such as The Georgia Historical Society, the Savannah Book Festival, Live Oak Regional Public Libraries, and The Rotary Club of Savannah.Aside from work and his time spent in the kitchen, Johnathon enjoys fishing – he says he feels as if he were born with a rod and reel in his hand – as well as travel, gardening, and genealogy. He also enjoys collecting Southern art and paintings

A native of Perry, Georgia, Johnathan Barrett’s Georgia roots date back to the late 1700s. For seven generations, fresh, farm-to-table food played a unifying role in his family, and as child he was introduced, first-hand, to the ingredients, practices, and nuances of Southern fare. This rich heritage of place continues to play center stage in Johnathon’s life, particularly in regards to food and dining. Successfully melding the classic menus of his birthplace with an expanded appreciation of other cuisines, the author, now a renowned host and cook, has called culinary-rich Savannah, Georgia his home for the last thirty years.
