CEO Students Hold Trade Show

The Riverbend CEO Program held its annual trade show last night in Alton. Students from three Riverbend high schools presented their 11 start-up small businesses to the public as a closing project for their class. More than 100 people stopped by to visit the booths and do businesses with the young entrepreneurs.

CEO Program facilitator Katie McBee tells the Big Z with two years now in the books she's looking forward to seeing continued growth in the program:

McBee says this class has a few more weeks to go before they wrap up, and acceptance letters for next years class are going out in early May. Students from Alton High, Marquette Catholic and East Alton Wood River will again take part for the 2018-19 school year.
