A different style of summer camp is coming to the community with a focus on business.

Unruh (UN-rew) also gave some insight into a similar camp aimed at high school students...
 

 

 
The goal of these camps is to get Clinton area students interested in learning more about owning their own businesses and spur enrollment in the CEO Program which is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019 at Clinton High School. 
 
First National Bank and Trust Company have pledged $3,000 toward the program over the next three years.  The program will partner with local small businesses and introduce high school seniors in Clinton, Blue Ridge, Maroa-Forsyth, and Warrensburg-Latham to the entrepreneurial experience.
