Janet Jungenberg Mentor of the Year

Janet Jungenberg received Mentor of the Year with Take Stock in Children. Janet has volunteered with Take Stock as a mentor for the past two years and has been instrumental in revitalizing Take Stock in the Putnam area. Janet is a Career Specialist/Resource Teacher with Putnam County School District. She has been with PCSD for 24 years. She has been a mentor with Take Stock for a total of seven years.  Congratulations Janet!

The Community Partner of the year was Clay Electric helping Take Stock to purchase seven scholarships through the Florida Prepaid College Foundation.

Take Stock is partnered with Goodwill Industries of North Florida. This dynamic partnership allows Goodwill not just to help people find jobs, but through successful post-secondary education to find better jobs. Take Stock in Children in Putnam County has not only grown from three to 54 students in the last year, but has received the gold level award from their state office for excelling in the standard of services they deliver to our Putnam county students. We could not have done this without PCSD and the community's amazing volunteer mentors who delivered over 650 mentor sessions during the past school year. The program relies on support from Goodwill, mentors, and the community to continue to grow this amazing program that benefits our Putnam county students by providing them with scholarships, mentors and hope.
