Bridgepoint Education to Partner With Junior Achievement in Annual Bowlathon Fundraiser on April 3, 2008

Bridgepoint Education and 55 of its employees will participate in Junior Achievement’s annual bowlathon on April 3rd. The event will take place from 3-5pm PT at Mira Mesa Lanes in San Diego.

All proceeds of the event will go to benefit San Diego and Imperial County students and ensure they have access to Junior Achievement’s programs, which are aimed at inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy.

 “Bridgepoint Education was founded on the premise that everyone deserves access to the highest quality education. Junior Achievement is an organization that mirrors that sentiment and devotes itself to nurturing and developing our most important asset: our young people,” said CEO Andrew Clark. “My own three daughters have been fortunate enough to be a part of San Diego’s public school system, and to participate in some of Junior Achievements programs. From a very personal vantage point, I have seen how those programs can enrich the lives of San Diego students and inspire them to succeed.”
