Forming, norming, storming, performing, and finally closure…the stages of a group. On Friday the West CEO Class brought closure to their time together with a Recognition Event held at New Life Lutheran Church. Each student took a moment to speak about their CEO experience in front of family, friends, mentors, and board members. The Edith Jakobs Education Scholarship was presented by her grandson, Nik to Braeden Thome. “Secret shoppers” judged trade show booths and Julie Jacobs, Blackhawk Hills Regional Council and CEO Board member, presented 2nd and 1st place to Rylan Shenefelt, Rys and Grind, and Braeden Thome, Arctic Energy, respectively.
