Jefferson Educational Society Celebrates 5th Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

In just a few short years, the Jefferson Educational Society has become a force in our community and the organization is celebrating its 5th birthday.  The group that calls itself a think tank for community progress marked its 5th anniversary with a gala at the Bayfront Convention Center.  

Leaders of the JES made a big announcement about funding for the future.  Vice President Ferki Ferati said, "We are announcing a major 5-million-dollar fund raising campaign of which we've raised already about 3.7 million of that goal."  Ferati added, "We want to enrich our programming we want to enrich our community and in order to do that we need funds to back us up."

Since it began, the Jefferson Educational Society has offered 450 programs, drawn about 5,000 different people to those events, raised funds for the Perry 200 Commemoration and brought top speakers to town for four global summits.
