The Christian County C-E-O, or "Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities" program, an entrepreneurial program for Christian County high school seniors, held their first-ever "C-E-O Alumni Brunch" on Saturday morning at the Chautauqua (chuh-TOCK-wuh) Auditorium in Manners Park in Taylorville.
Several C-E-O alumni from the past 3 years of the program attended, as well as some of the new students that will begin the program next month.
C-E-O facilitator Dick Adams told Regional Radio News the event was an opportunity for students and parents of past classes and the upcoming class, to visit.
Adams added it was good to get some C-E-O alum and newbees together, and that 3 of the C-E-O alumni have come back to financially support the Christian County program.
The Christian County C-E-O program selects students to participate after an application process, to attend class weekdays from 7:30 to 9 at various business locations thru-out the school year. It teaches students business skills and enables them to start their own business. The program is entirely funded by donations from county businesses and individuals.
