Students to Hold Trade Show

The Riverbend CEO Program will wrap up its second year with a Trade Show on Tuesday in Alton. More than a dozen students from three area high schools are taking part in the class this session and all have been challenged with planning and starting up their own small business. Those businesses will then be featured at the show.

Marquette Catholic Senior Grace Frost tells the Big Z she's learned quite a bit about how to present yourself face to face, which can help in any situation but it's very important when doing business with someone.

Students from Alton High and East Alton Wood River High are also taking part. The Trade Show is Tuesday from 5-7pm at the ballroom of the Best Western Premier Hotel on College Avenue in Alton and is free to attend and open to the public.
