Editor's Note 7/31/14

At a luncheon this week the first graduates of the Sangamon CEO program described the businesses they created, the people they met and the life lessons they learned. The high school students spent a big chunk of the past school year visiting businesses, hearing presentations by business leaders and launching their own businesses for CEO – “creating entrepreneurial opportunities.” The students learned not only how to make money but also how to network and to speak in public. Tri-City High School principal Dustin Day described one student who went from being a chronic absentee to a self-improvement enthusiast after participating. The new program is proving that the entrepreneurial spirit is a special piece of energy that can turn kids’ lives around. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
