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 16 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 21 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


Lexi Wilson - Knox County CEO

Lexi Wilson

About Me

My name is Lexi Wilson. I am a junior at South Knox High School. At South Knox, I am currently involved in the National Honor Society and the girls' soccer team. In the past four years I have competed in an International Speech Competition in which I was awarded Third place one year, and Champion in two other years.

This year I hope to learn from professional business owners in our community, on how they make their businesses run. I am excited to learn how to get my business started from the beginning and make it successful throughout the course of the year. I am very determined to learn all that I can while in the CEO program in order to better myself for the community. After college I plan on coaching soccer while also being a forensics accountant.
