Jacqueline McCracken Wall, President and CEO of Junior Achievement

“In a world that is always connected, are we really connecting?” On Wednesday, March 13 when Jacqueline McCracken Wall, president and CEO of Junior Achievement, will share challenges of intentional connection and why it is required to drive success of individuals, teams, organizations and communities.

Jacqueline joined Junior Achievement of the Triad in 2012 as a programs manager and transitioned to her current role as President and CEO at the beginning of 2015. Junior Achievement empowers young people to own their economic success by providing volunteer-delivered kindergarten through twelfth grade programs that help them foster skills in financial literacy, work-readiness and entrepreneurship. The organization serves six counties: Alamance, Forsyth, Guilford, Montgomery, Randolph and Rockingham.

During Jacqueline’s tenure as President and CEO the organization has ranked in the top four out of 107 Junior Achievement offices across the nation for growth in student reach, classrooms served and volunteer contact hours. For three consecutive years, the organization has received the Peak Performance Team Award from Junior Achievement USA. To qualify for the award, recipients have achieved the highest combined level of student growth, increased market share and total revenue growth.

When she isn’t advancing the Junior Achievement mission, Jacqueline is spending time with her husband, Aaron, and son, Marshall. In community, Jacqueline is a Rotarian; serves on the Board of Directors for the Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship; and serves on the Advisory Board for the MBA program at UNCG.
