The Christian County CEO Trade Show is quickly approaching, where the students who are currently participating in the Christian County CEO Program will have the chance to show off the businesses they have created as a part of the CEO program. The event will take place May 6th at Lincoln Land Community College's Taylorville Campus.
Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce said the CEO program gives it's participants a leg up on on the competition, and the skills to start a local business once they've graduated college.
The CEO program has already begun helping students, where students from last years class have been able to pay for their college education with the funds earned from the businesses they started as a part of the CEO program.
Hornbuckle appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
