The Central Illinois CEO program is now accepting student applications.
Up to 20 students will be a part of this program that includes Blue Ridge, Clinton, Maroa-Forsyth, and Warrensburg-Latham districts. CEO Board President, Justin Fentress says juniors this year are encouraged to apply if they are interested in owning their own business in the future.
According to Fentress, if they need to, they plan to accept incoming juniors. The students meet at different locations and there will be mentors from businesses in the area.
Anyone is welcome to apply and Fentress explains the application is a short questionnaire with a brief interview process and they also ask for references.
Fentress thanks the community for their support. He says without business leaders stepping up, this would not have been possible for the area's youth to participate in.
