Clayton Jakul

About Me

Clayton Jakul is a proud American. Through out high school, he was enrolled in honors classes, played soccer, and is a member of the National Honors Society, the social studies club, and was Rotary student of the month during his junior year. Seeking more experi­ence outside of the typical classroom, Clayton joined the Madison Fire Department as a junior and is now a senior firefighter. "Soccer has taught me many life skills that I will always remember, and so has the CEO Program. In just a few months, I was able to learn lessons that normally take a lifetime." He found interest in the CEO program from already owning his own business and was seeking knowledge to improve his lawn care business. "This program is something special; there is no other class that can give a student the experience this program can provide. The amount of people willing to make an impact on high school seniors in our community is just wonderful!" Jakul's Lawn Care has been able to rapidly grow this past year due to Clayton's understanding of the business world, gained through the CEO class. As his class business, Clayton started "UnitedTees." United Tees is an online business that sells patriotic T-shirts, hoodies, and graphic tanks. Clayton plans to further his education at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
