The Shelby County CEO program is in it's first year, and already the students involved in the program are seeing the progress in themselves as they take the course. Two of those students, Blake Barnes and Brayden Young, both say the class has helped them have more confidence in themselves.
Barnes says his public speaking skills have improved while being involved in the CEO program.
Young says he's taking the course as more of a “life skills” course rather than just a business course, and it's paying off.
Barnes and Young both appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville Studios.
