We want to say a big thank you to Mark Riley and the incoming juniors and seniors at Trico High School for letting us share the CEO program with their class. The Jackson County CEO program is one of the most unique opportunities available to High School students in our area.

CEO develops business skills, professionalism and creative problem solving by giving students the chance to learn in a real-world environment. Over the course of a single year students will tour 40-60 local business and have over 50 entrepreneurs from across Southern Illinois speak to the class.

The students will write business plans, pitch to bankers, find capital and graduate high school as the CEO of a real company they founded before they even turn 18.

From job applications and scholarships to college applications and interviews there are very few things that stand out like CEO does. The Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship’s claim to fame is that they graduate high school students 10 years ahead of their peers. Find out why at:
