Needless to say, our minds were definitely stretched as we were introduced to the world of a Disc Jockey and the evolution radio has experienced over the last ten years. Jasper CEO students were astounded to find out that at any one given time on the radio there are approximately 7,000 listeners as WIKK covers a 100 mile radius and is the only classic rock station. What a novelty to have this station nestled in Jasper County!

State Farm Insurance with Tammy Wilson

Personal and Professional Liability

As our class business is well underway and the students are working on their individual businesses, discussions of personal and professional liability are starting to arise. We were honored to host Jasper CEO investor, Tammy Wilson with State Farm Insurance, to our class on Thursday to discuss just exactly what this type of insurance is and how it is used in real world scenarios. She also discussed how liability insurance effects our high school students life every day. It is such a pleasure to have such a wealth of information in our community and even more fulfilling that our community members are willing to share that with us.

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Jasper County CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 0 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 5 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.
