Over 225 people attended Friday night's Christian County C-E-O Trade Show at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
This was the climax of the school year for the students, who have attended C-E-O class from 7:30 til 9 in the morning facilitated by C-E-O facilitator Dick Adams. The students, seniors from all over Christian County, learned entrepreneurial skills that they can use in life.
Each student showcased their own business that they started either during the C-E-O year, or that they premiered during the Trade Show Friday night.
Students who had booths at Friday night's Trade Show included Reese Bergschneider, J-T Boehme, Ryan Brown, Carrie Denning, Luc Johnson, Karlee Kuntzman, Riley Matheny, Jordan Moats, Jessica Parsons, Hayden Walton, Kyle Woods and Kayden Wright, all from Taylorville; Grace Blakley from Faith Bible Christian Academy, and James Harris from South Fork.
C-E-O board president Brenda Spurling told W-R-A-N Radio during its live broadcast from the event, that the turnout was great.
Facilitator Dick Adams told W-R-A-N during its live broadcast Friday night, that this year's C-E-O class was remarkable.
