“CEO? Doesn’t that mean getting up earlier than I have too for school? No I’m not doing that.

That’s the response I get from most of my peers. If only they knew....

4 months. That’s it. That’s how long I’ve been in CEO. And while many know I’m not a morning person whatsoever deciding to join CEO is the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities is what it’s about. That’s not just it though. Yes it’s helping me create my own business and become a leader in society, but it’s so much more. It’s making new friends and meeting amazing business owners in my community. It’s learning responsibility. Learning how to speak in public. Learning how to be a hard working member of society but most of all, it’s about growth. My parents have watched me changed into someone they never thought possible (they won’t say that aloud though😂). I never thought that If last year you would have told me I’d be the person I am now I wouldn’t believe it. I didn’t know that a simple early morning class could create such a big impact on my life and personality. While I’m still my goofy self I’m so much more. I’m proud of the person I am. And the one I’m becoming. It’s all thanks to the Jackson CEO program and Nic Skovgaard.

Nic, thank you for seeing something in me I’d never thought I’d see in myself. Thanks for being an amazing facilitator and I know our bunch can be a handful but thank you for never giving up and always having faith knowing what we can become and achieve.

Kristin Rohlfing-Anderson Rodney Anderson, thank you for your unconditional love and support. For helping me become the person I am today.

All I can say is upcoming juniors and seniors please please please take your oppertunity and join this program next year. You won’t regret it. I’m only barley 4 months in and I know it’s the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

Thank you to both Madi and Gage who absolutely made my day by reshairing this today. Being part of the CEO program has been by far one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. To each and everyone one of the students, speakers, board members, investors and hosts I want to personally say thank you. The Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship and the CEO program are unequivocally the most amazing learning experiences I’ve ever seen in a school system. I consider myself extremely lucky to be a part of them.
