About Me

Ryan Cross is a senior at Edwardsville High School. Ryan is involved in Student Council where he is the Vice President of Orange Rush, a student-led organization that supports school events. He enjoys hanging out with friends and cleaning his truck. In the fall, Ryan plans to attend SIUE to major in business or finance in hopes to become a commercial lender, or take over his family’s auto body and towing business. Ryan joined CEO because he wanted an in-depth business class that made him go out of his comfort zone. Ryan is excited for the 2021-2022 CEO school year and cannot wait to watch himself grow throughout the year!
