Dear CEO community,
It is hard to believe that this is the end of my CEO experience. This year flew by faster than I ever could have guessed. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have had to experience my home town in a way I never had before. The people that I have met and learned from will be in my heart forever as I move forward. The greatest lesson that I have learned through CEO is how to persevere and succeed despite any challenges. My favorite Memory of CEO was of us driving around Richland County during our Investor Care Week. It was such a simple task yet it was a wonderful experience getting to see the people that support this program in person. I also enjoyed the opportunity to relax and get to know my classmates better. The thing I am going to miss the most about CEO is being able to listen and learn from business professionals. The people involved in the CEO program are all wonderful people and I feel so blessed to have met them! A few specific individuals that wish to thank are the board, my mentor, Doug Manley, and our facilitator, Sheri Gray. CEO would not have been nearly as great without the support of the board, the guidance from Doug, and the constant dedication from Sheri. I love each and every one of you! To the class of 2021, please work hard and listen well. CEO is an incredible experience where all of the people that you come into contact with want to see you succeed. I promise that if you listen and learn, your CEO experience will be incredible. CEO has been an incredible journey for me but now it is time for this journey to end so that I can begin another. Thank you to all who were with me on the way.
Sincerely,
Drew Walters
Richland County CEO
Class of 2020
