Davie School Inn + CEO = FUN!

On Saturday, February 17, the Davie School Inn gymnasium will once again be filled with the sound of people cheering on their teams. This time, however, it will be teams of 8, enjoying an 80’s themed Trivia Night in a party atmosphere with delicious “heavy” hors d’oeuvres especially prepared for the evening.


Davie School Inn's new owners prepare

Tammy Woodrum, who along with her husband Lyle purchased the Davie School Inn last summer said, "We are excited, and proud, to host the Union County CEO organization as our first community event. They are an impressive set of young people to work with.

The restoration of the gymnasium walls and floors was performed by Jeff Turner and his team of craftsmen. They’ve done an absolutely amazing job painstakingly transforming the space. Over time, we will use the gym as a gathering place for our guests, as a hosting space for small events and selectively as a community meeting space.

Again, we hope the community turns out in droves for the CEO trivia event. It will be a fun evening and it is for such a good cause."


Student planned businesses take a lot of work!

The Team 18 Class Business is the way the students earn the money for the student loans to help them start their individual businesses next month. Team members have worked for weeks to be sure all is ready for Saturday night, from catering to signage, selling tables and advertising for local businesses through silent auction donations to decorations.

Twelve table have been reserved for this very special debut event, but there are a few more available. If anyone would like to captain a table of 8, please call Grace Pitts, 618-713-4935, after school hours, or Kathy Bryan, CEO facilitator, 618-559-9138.


Come Join Us!

Grace Pitts, the CEO of the class business had this to say. “The Union County CEO Class of 2018 is so excited about this event. We hope that our guests will leave our trivia night not only with a smile, but more knowledge about our wonderful program.

What will make this night so spectacular is the location that we are using, Davie School Inn. The owners, Lyle and Tammy Woodrum, have offered their personal abilities and knowledge about trivia nights that will make this event a hit. We can’t thank them enough for their generous support.”

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Union County CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 10 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 15 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.
