Second Regional CEO Pitch Showcases Young Entrepreneurs’ Business Ideas

High school students from McDonough, Hancock, Pike, Brown, and Schuyler counties showcased their business ideas at the second annual Regional CEO Pitch in Mt. Sterling, Illinois. The multi-county CEO program aims to teach students how to become responsible young adults, emphasizing the importance of maturity and dedication.

Maycie McCombs, creator of Maycie’s Meals, emphasized the seriousness of the program, stating that it is not for those looking to simply have fun. Karly Gallaher, creator of Karly’s Kare, found the experience invaluable in developing her communication and life skills.

The winners of the pitch were Justice Keene for his local broadcast “Bomber Sports Network” in first place, Karly Gallaher for senior home health care service “Karly’s Kare” in second place, and Wesley McEwen for 3D printing service “Dream 3D” in third place. These young entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to showcase their businesses at a trade show on April 12 at the Crossing Camp in Rushville, Illinois, open to the public.
