Welcome to Kandiyohi County CEO!
The ACGC, NLS, and Willmar public school districts have collaborated to offer our students an unbelievable experience. Starting this fall, twenty
students from these three schools will learn from local business owners what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur. The class will visit fifty to sixty businesses and have up to forty guest speakers through the year. It is the goal of CEO to help our students view the Kandiyohi area as a place of opportunity and to give them the skills and confidence to help move it forward.
The second annual Kandiyohi County CEO Class Business was a tremendous success. Thank you to everyone that made it possible.
