State Rep. CD Davidsmeyer recently spoke to the Pike County CEO students.
“I had a good time speaking with the Pike County CEO students and then went over to enjoy the Pittsfield FFA show,” commented Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer. “The CEO Program is an important partner in the education of our young people to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and confidence to go out and be successful in creating jobs in our communities.”
Entrepreneurship education seeks to prepare people, especially youth, to be responsible, enterprising individuals who become entrepreneurs or entrepreneurial thinkers and contribute to economic development and sustainable communities. The CEO program is much more than a textbook course. Rather, students are immersed in real life learning experiences with the opportunity to take risks, manage the results, and learn from the outcomes.
