The Christian County CEO program has been helping students grow and start new local businesses for several years now, and now Shelby County is joining in with their own CEO program. The Shelby County CEO program is in it's first year, and is helping students by teaching them valuable skills that will help with their professional careers.
Anna Kiley, the Shelby County Economic Development Director, and facilitator for the Shelby County CEO Program says the program is not only great for those looking to become entrepreneurs, but also for those looking to expand their other professional skills as well.
The program helps teach students about business by bringing them to area businesses, allowing the students to learn first hand about the ins and outs of running a successful business from local entrepreneurs themselves.
Kiley appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville Studios.
