CEO Class Visits Co-op
Shelby Electric Cooperative (SEC) President and CEO Josh Shallenberger recently hosted the Shelby County CEO class at the cooperative’s headquarters. Students learned that SEC serves and maintains over 2,000 miles of line, while serving approximately 4.5 members per mile of line.
“CEO” stands for Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities. It is an experiential learning-based course that uses community relationships to provide an overview of business processes and development for junior and seniors in Shelby County high schools. Throughout the program, students visit local businesses, learn from guest speakers, participate in operating a class business, write a business plan, and, from concept to reality, build their own legal, functioning business.
