Kent Probst with Midland Institute visited Montgomery CEO to meet this year's team and share some of his experiences from meeting other teams and what makes CEO unique.

Kent shared the history of CEO, "it started when Jack Schultz was interviewed by a young man for a high school project. Jack was so impressed that he called the school to say, 'this should happen more often!' Soon after CEO was born."

Kent explained the success of the program is in the experience and the results. Hundreds of high school students are getting the business experience of starting their own businesses years sooner than their counterparts. And they get to do it with the wisdom and experience of community professionals and business owners. "For 18 years you've seen the world from one perspective. CEO teaches you to see the world through other people's perspectives."

CEO's National Conference, July 10th-11th, 2020, in Champaign IL. Team members, alumni, board members, investors, and friends of CEO are welcome to attend.
