Davenport Mayor Teaches JA Class at Truman

Mayor Klipsch visits Truman Elementary

Mayor Frank Klipsch was the Junior Achievement (JA) volunteer for Mrs. Beebe’s fourth-grade class at Truman Elementary. JA Our Region introduces students to entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs use resources to produce goods and services. Mayor Klipsch invited guest speakers into the classroom, including Tiphanie Cannon, owner of Oh So Sweet Bakery, to share her story of how she started her business. Students created their own business plans and presented them to Mayor Klipsch. They also learned about profit and loss by playing a game where the students owned a fictional hot dog stand.
