Ryan Ressler of Farmers Union Insurance in Mandan received the Outstanding Junior Achievement Volunteer of the Year 2012-13 award.

Ressler recently volunteered with Janean Johnson’s fifth grade class at Lewis & Clark Elementary School as part of the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce Junior Acheivement Program. He had the students use cooperative learning groups to create a business logo, theme and advertisements to institute marketing styles and ideas to go along with a business idea of their own. The students also performed skits as commercials.
