Union County CEO Alumni Donate Profits

Photo5ANNA—At a recent gathering of the Union County CEO Program family, alumni from the 2015-2016 class announced donations their class would be making from profits generated by the Christmas Cash class business.

Photo2Profits from Christmas Cash were initially used to make loans to individual student businesses during the spring semester.  Those loans having been repaid, the program’s 2015-2016 class decided to make the following donations:

  • $350 to CEO Team 17 for special events
  • $500 to establish an alumni fund for future CEO classes
  • $500 to the Local Wounded Warriors Duck Hunt at Grassy Lake Hunting Club
  • $740 to the CEO advisory board for the program’s general fund

The evening was hosted at Coad of Anna’s Ford building by General Manager Jason Miller.  Be on the lookout for similar events throughout the school year.
