The Students taking part in the Sangamon Valley CEO program come from a variety of backgrounds and have all been impacted greatly by the program.
Several of the students came from entrepreneurial backgrounds while others previously had no interest in being an entrepreneur. Sadie Peeler from Bement gives an overview of the CEO program and why she joined.
Alexa Smith, a senior from Bement, indicates the CEO program has helped her choose a college to attend through site visits. She plans to attend Millikin University where she can further her business ventures.
Monticello High School senior Colin Jones, says his favorite site visit was to Top Flight Grain in Monticello. He found it interesting to learn how national politics played a role in Central Illinois agriculture.
Hannah Munsterman from Argenta-Oreana encourages those with the slightest interest in being a business leader to consider being a part of the CEO program. She says she has learned a lot about herself and what it means to run your own business.
