Indiana National Guard talks about Teamwork

The Indiana National Guard came for a visit last Friday to talk to the CEO Class about the importance of working together for a common goal.  Sargeant Hatfield took the students outside for a teamwork activity. At first they were not sure how to complete the task but once the class began communicating with one another, the task was easy to complete.  Sargeant Hatfield took the students back inside and talked about the Indiana National Guard and how they can pay for college.  The students asked several interesting questions concerning his time in the Guard.  The next activity the students had to divide into groups of four and come up with a solution to the problem in North Korea. Then a representative from their group presented their idea to the class.  The groups learned to listen to their teammates ideas while presenting their own.  Thank you to Sargeant Hatfield for talking with the CEO Class.

    Get Involved in CEO

    The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Knox County CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

    When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 12 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 17 people.

    We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.


    If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message

    About Me

    As the son of a fourth generation farmer I have allways learned to work for what you need or want. I have grown up on the farm and intend on coming back to the family farm after collage. I am currently enrolled in south Knox high school as a Junior and am planning on going to Vincennes university after high school for a four year agricultural business degree. I joined the Ceo program for the farm to teach me how to be a better leader and business owner in Knox county. I have many hopes for myself as long as many other Ceo students to see what the Ceo program has in store for us all.
