The Christian County CEO Board of Directors announced that applications are now available for the upcoming school year. Christian county high students who will be juniors or seniors during the 17-18 school year are eligible to apply. The CEO program provides real world experience that increases the capacity for creative thinking and problem-solving through meeting the challenges of starting and building a business. In the course of the year- long class, students will develop both a class business and an individual business, and write business plans to support them.
Local investors, who also serve as guest instructors, fund the program. Every CEO student is paired with a mentor from the business community. CEO students will visit dozens of area businesses and learn from dozens of guest speakers.
Applications are available from high school counselors or the CEO website. Visit www.christiancountyceo.com to learn more. If you are interested in becoming an investor, hosting the class in a visit to your business, or serving as a guest speaker, contact Dee Krueger at 561-0578.
