Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com will host nine fifth-grade students from Wilson Elementary School on Thursday, March 19 from 10 a.m. until Noon as part of the school’s Panthers On Site program. This innovative Partners in Education program gives students living in at risk environments first hand experience in real world workplace situations.
Kerry McCoy owner of Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com said, “Hosting a group of students and letting them experience the workplace can leave a lasting impression on these young people. It lets them know we are just everyday people doing everyday jobs and that this is attainable for all Americans.”
In it’s fortieth year in business, Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com feels lucky to have accomplished so much and wants other young people to know hard work pays off. Small business is the back bone of America.
“Opening our doors to these children is a great way for us to pay our knowledge forward. There is no better training ground for young people than to work in a small business where you can see how everybody makes a difference from the CEO to housekeeping and everyone in between. It is real life team building and accountability.”
Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com is based in Little Rock, Ark., and has been in business since 1975. They have been selling flags, flagpoles, banners, pennants and home and garden décor online nationally since 1995 as FlagandBanner.com.
