Andrew Reinert

Pike Co CEO's Facilitator

Morgan-Scott CEO is pleased to announce the hiring of Andrew Reinert as the program instructor. The Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities (CEO) program teaches high school seniors how entrepreneurs and businesses operate as well as how to run their own business.

Reinert, a Riverton native, is a 2008 graduate from Eastern Illinois University who earned his MBA from Western Governors University in 2012. A former business teacher and athletics coach at Springfield High School, he brings expertise in education and entrepreneurship, as he currently runs a small business as well. His wife, Laura, is also an educator in the Riverton school district.

Over the course of the school year, Reinert will be working with area businesses to facilitate on-site learning opportunities. He will also be helping the students start individual businesses as well as a class-wide business project. The class will consist of about students from Jacksonville, Winchester, Bluffs, Routt Catholic, Meredosia-Chambersburg, and Triopia high schools and will meet for 90 minutes on weekday mornings during the school year.

The CEO program enables high school students to become self-reliant, enterprising individuals who will start successful businesses and contribute to the ongoing economic development of their communities. The program is funded by sponsors from within the community. Founding sponsors of the program are Illinois Electric Cooperative and Jacksonville Regional Economic Development Corporation.
