Greetings Gibson City, Fisher, and Paxton communities!  I am thrilled and excited to be a part of the Prairieland CEO team as the class facilitator.  Prairieland CEO is in its third program year and I continue to be amazed at how the CEO program transforms its students and enhances the communities that support it.  The eight students we have in the program this year are top-notch and are super motivated about learning all they can from our area’s business community and leaders.  I am expecting great things from them! 

If you are an area business owner that it not currently involved with Prairieland CEO, we want to connect with you!  Are you willing to share your unique story about your business and how you arrived where you are today?  Do you have a special skill set, passion for a certain area of business management, or just want to encourage future entrepreneurs?  Contact me to set up a day to come visit with our class or for us to come see your business. We want to learn from you!
