Achieve-A-Bowl Was a Success

See what some NSO Students had to say about this years Achieve-A-Bowl:

"This has been my second Junior Achievement event and it was very memorable. It was for a great cause and it also brought me closer to people in Johnson & Wales University that I have not met before. This event took place at Lang's Bowling alley in Cranston, RI and it turned out to be fun even though I only had 3 strikes and I didn't win the whole game. I got a chance to hang out will William Priante, dean of admissions. He is an awesome guy, most students don't get an opportunity to bowl with William but I did and I could say that only happen because of Junior Achievement Achieve-A-Bowl."  
-Tahliq Mills

"Taking part in the 31st annual Junior Achievement Achieve-A-Bowl was such an amazing experience. Everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic; I truly felt welcome to the group."
-Zareena Majeed
