High school juniors from Clinton, Blue Ridge, Maroa-Forsyth and Warrensburg-Latham, school districts interested in working with local businesses or owning their own businesses in the future are encouraged to apply for the Central Illinois Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities (CICEO) program.
The CEO program, based on the Midland Institute’s program, is a year-long course designed to utilize partnerships that provide an overview of business development and processes. Students who complete the program also earn high school credit. The inaugural class begins in the fall pf 2019.
Students accepted into the program will meet daily, Monday through Friday, before school hours at a participating business to learn more about that business, complete special projects related to that business and to network with business leaders.
