"From CEO, I want to become a strong, independent person, capable of holding my own in the business world. I expect this class will guide me in the decisions I make for my future. CEO isn’t just a class; it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I am honored to be a part of."

About My Business

Mariah Bushue is forming Simply Rustic, along with her partner Paige Koester. Simply Rustic is a custom pallet-art company that creates and sells wall décor made from wooden pallets. The founders want to help create a rustic environment within homes, while assisting their customer in adding his or her own personal touch with their products. Mariah and Paige are selling a variety of decorative items, from wine racks and bookshelves, to signs with your favorite bible verse, or perhaps just your name. You can contact them at Mariah plans to enhance her business and entrepreneurial abilities at John A. Logan College next year, while improving on her leadership skills as she plays on the girls’ golf team. In the future, she hopes to come back to Effingham and make her entrepreneurial dreams come true.
