The Union County CEO program recently hosted its annual Meet the Mentors breakfast at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church and was the first meeting of the program’s 2017-18 class with their mentors from the business community.
As a part of CEO, each CEO student is paired with a mentor from their local community to foster a relationship in which they communicate, receive advice and more with the generations before them. One of the long-term goals of the program is to lead the students to roles as leaders not only in their individual businesses but in their community.
“I feel fortunate to be able to be a part of the CEO program. This program not only teaches the students but also reminds the adults of what a great community we live in,” said mentor Melanie Lasley of A-J National Bank in a news release.
This year’s mentors include Union County Treasurer Darren Bailey, Robin Hawk of Union County Abstract Office, Glenda Boone of U.S. Bank, Casey Stout of U.S. Bank, Melanie Lasley of A-J National Bank, retired pharmaceutical sales leader Larry Carter, Greg George of Anna State Bank, Stephanie Cox of A-J National Bank, Kelli Wood of Edward Jones and John Nimmo of Leadership Lived.
