operated businesses opening in Logan County. This free event is the
finale to the Land of Lincoln CEO program; a year - long program
that allows high school students from Logan County the opportunity
to enroll in. The CEO program began in 2015 as a way to allow high
school students, who have the entrepreneurial spirit, to join the
business community with a strong foundation from what they gain in
hands on and educational experience from taking the class.
With the leadership of Jason Mauhar, the students learned more than
just the basics of owning and operating a business. The LLCEO
program is a class that meets daily from 7:30am to 9:00am at
different businesses around Logan County. Students receive credits
for this class as they would other classes they take at their
respective high schools. Business owners and experts in specific
business fields have been guest speakers throughout the year. In
addition, the students took many field trips and were assigned
mentors to help guide them along this voyage of turning their ideas
and dreams into a business.
The tradeshow on May 3rd will showcase all student-owned
businesses. Each student will have samples of products and services their
business offers. Students will also be available to answer questions about their
businesses and their experiences in the LLCEO program.
