Thank you, Alex J. Watkins, for meeting with our CEO students this week at City Hall in Harrisburg!

Alex is a graduate of the CEO program and is currently overseeing Economic & Community Development for the City of Harrisburg. He shared all about the history of Harrisburg as well as a look ahead. He discussed economic development, community planning, workforce engagement, resident engagement and more. He also emphasized the importance of shopping local as we took a short walk around downtown. Alex shared the vision for the community which the students loved.

Did you know Harrisburg, Illinois - Gateway to the Shawnee National Forest has been offering drive-in movie nights in Harrisburg for FREE? This is part of their resident engagement plan. There is actually a movie being shown this Friday on their new 24’ x 24’ screen. Head over to their page for more information!

Alex thank you again for being so willing to share with our students! We are so proud of you and all your accomplishments!
