01 Oct Whitney was RIGHT.
Know what? WHITNEY HOUSTON KNEW. Maybe she could have made some better decisions in her life and what not, but she had the voice of an angel and SHE KNEW THAT CHILDREN WERE OUR FUTURE. We learned that YET AGAIN yesterday (well, about high school kids) when we had the honor of speaking about this crazy little business at one of the morning meetings of the Morgan – Scott CEO students.
The Morgan Scott CEO program is all about giving amazing high school students in Morgan and Scott Counties of Illinois the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship during their senior year. Students attend 90 minute morning classes five days a week for the entire year, during which they attend talks by local businesses, meet with mentors and develop their own businesses. AND THEY ARE HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS. Like, 16-17-18 years olds. They get to the meetings by 7:15am. HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS. They listen intently, they are incredibly polite and engaging, they have amazing ideas and views and they have killer handshakes. No joke.
Like I said, we spoke to them yesterday and were reminded once again how incredible this next generation is and how lucky we are to do what we do. Thanks for having us, guys! Check out more about these awesome students HERE.
