2022 Edwardsville CEO Special Honors | ⭐️ The CEO WOW Award ⭐️
--
During the first week of each new school year, students discuss the importance of the CEO WOW factor. Our goal is to create a WOW impression with every single speaker and program participant.

The importance of the CEO WOW factor is not just to continue to uphold and promote our CEO brand, these characteristics are consistently mentioned by our guest speakers that set leaders apart from the crowd.
