It was graduation night of sorts, Thursday night for the 9 Christian County students enrolled in the C-E-O, or "Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities" program.
After a year of learning about Christian County businesses, they created their own business and officially showed it off at the first-ever Christian County C-E-O Trade Show at Lincoln Land Community College in Taylorville.
The turnout was overwhelming to the students. Cheryl Mitchell, who is interim executive director for the Midland Institute that first created the C-E-O program in Effingham, said she was pleased with how the community came out to support the students.
Christian County C-E-O facilitator Dick Adams echoed Mitchell's comments, and said it was a great tribute to the 9 students.
