“I have learned so much more in CEO than I ever have, and ever will learn, in another class. I wish it didn't have to end, and that we could continue to visit businesses and learn from people who are successful, learning their secrets to success. I want to thank everyone who has made it possible for me to be in this class: the CEO board members, business owners and speakers, and facilitator, Mrs. Greenwald.”
