Christian County CEO Board of Directors are pleased to announce the 16-17 Christian County CEO Class.  Brendan Watson, Samantha Hafliger and Alexus Gibson all from Edinburg; Matthew O’Brien, Zebert Dunaway, Kyle Woods, Rhett Molen and Dalton Lingl all from Taylorville will be embarking on the CEO journey.

The Christian County CEO program is made possible by the generous donations from Christian County businesses, community groups, and individuals.  There is no cost to the students or school districts.   Students will tour area businesses and learn about business from guest speakers.  The program teaches leadership, encouragement, and creativity. 

“Entrepreneurship education seeks to prepare people, especially youth, to be responsible, enterprising individuals who become entrepreneurs or entrepreneurial thinkers and contribute to economic development and sustainable communities. The CEO program is much more than a textbook course. Rather, students are immersed in real life learning experiences with the opportunity to take risks, manage the results, and learn from the outcomes,” says Cheryl Mitchell, Midland Institute Interim Executive Director.
