Released last December as a publication worthy of any coffee table, At Work in Arizona frames the story of our state’s economic history over the past 100 years through the lens of the men and women who built it, and makes the point that, in order for the next 100 years to be as remarkable as the first, increased investment in education is essential.
“Arizona has a rich history of achievement driven by ingenuity and hard work,” says Jim Lundy, founding president and CEO of Alliance Bank of Arizona, which published the book and is making it a fundraiser for education-focused nonprofits. “But when it comes to education, we have some unfinished business. Arizona ranks at or near bottom in state spending on education. To remain competitive in a global marketplace, we need to change that narrative through strategic investment in creating a 21st-century work force.”
At Work in Arizona is available with any donation above $100 to Alliance for Education Fund. Publisher Alliance Bank of Arizona has earmarked all proceeds from this project to what it has identified as 12 of the state’s most effective education-focused nonprofits.
