A new board member has joined Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast who brings a wealth of e-commerce knowledge to the mentoring organization for schoolchildren.

Ron Hersch, a Mirasol resident and former director at Bear Stearns & Co., will enable Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast further its mission of teaching youths about the finances and the economy.

Hersch said he agreed to step up because he wants to make a difference in the lives of the future generation. A longtime volunteer with the organization, he mentors a 10th-tenth grade class at Palm Beach Gardens Community High School, a campus not too far away from his community of Palm Beach Gardens homes for sale.

Mirasol, one of the signature neighborhoods of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, is a luxurious and beautiful area north of PGA Boulevard that offers friendly neighbors, rich assets and amenities, and a great location close to shopping, the airport and the beach.

As a board member, Hersch will help steer the strategic direction of Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast in the coming months and years. He has an extensive background in business dealings, financials opportunities, commodities and management. He worked at Bear Stearns from 1992 to 2007.

Hersch joins Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast’s board at an exciting time for the organization, according to its president, Claudia Kirk Barto. Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast is ringing in its five-year anniversary of JA BizTown Mobile, a school program, during the 2013-2014 year, and is planning such new initiatives as JA Finance Park and JA Girl$.

JA programs are facilitated by volunteers, such as Hersch, in more than 120 schools and youth organizations throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties. For information, call 561-242-9468.
