Second Regional CEO Pitch Showcases Young Entrepreneurs’ Business Ideas

The Regional CEO Pitch, held for the second time, was a platform for young entrepreneurs from the multi-county CEO program in Mt. Sterling, Illinois to showcase their business ideas. High school students from McDonough, Hancock, Pike, Brown and Schuyler counties presented their ideas to three judges. The program emphasizes maturity and dedication as it aims to teach students how to become responsible young adults.

The participants were serious about the importance of the program and emphasized that it is not for those looking for fun. Maycie McCombs, creator of Maycie’s Meals and Karly Gallaher, founder of Karly’s Kare both found the experience valuable in developing their communication and life skills.

Justice Keene won first place with his local broadcast “Bomber Sports Network”, while Karly Gallaher came in second place with her senior home health care service “Karly’s Kare”. Wesley McEwen took third place with his 3D printing service “Dream 3D”. These young entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to showcase their businesses at a trade show on April 12 at Crossing Camp in Rushville, Illinois which is open to the public.
