Marcia Forston President & CEO Leadership

  LinkedIn Profile

Marcia joined Junior Achievement of Southwestern Indiana in 2016 as President/CEO after 25 years in the corporate sector and supported by more than 30 years of non-profit work. She is honored and thrilled to serve our Greater Evansville Region through the life-changing mission of Junior Achievement.

Marcia currently serves on Junior Achievement USA’s Human Resources Committee, JA Pathways Steering Committee, and co-leads the JA Work and Career Readiness Pathway Team. Locally, she serves on the Region 11 Workforce Development Board and its Youth Committee, and is a member of the Talent 2025 Core Team.

These words shared recently by local entrepreneur Drew Peyronnin inspire her every day: “We have entered a period where the skills you teach and strengthen in JA will be more important than ever in our lifetimes. Innovation, collaboration, adaptability, self-reliance, critical thinking, and problem solving will all pay dividends to individuals and to the altered economy soon to emerge. Don't lose sight of how critical your mission is.” #changetheworld!
