"I’m hoping that being in the CEO class will open my eyes to the business world, and will drive me to be as successful as I can be. I believe the CEO class will prepare me for the future by helping me to be comfortable in the business environment, and will give me the confidence to communicate easily with others.  I’m so grateful I’ll be able to get an inside look at a number of great community businesses, and I’m beyond excited about all the new experiences coming my way from being a part of this class."

About My Business

Riley Pruemer has started a business called Just in Case Designs. This is a mobile-phone-case company, hand-selecting designs that will enhance the life of iPhone-carrying customers. Featured designs will include school-spirit cases for Dieterich, Teutopolis, Effingham, and St. Anthony fans. Riley will also provide unique styles for iPhones, appealing to all generations, and serving them through every occasion of life. Because… it’s all about that case! Beyond learning numerous life lessons, CEO has driven Riley to grasp his potential of becoming a successful entrepreneur. “Through CEO, I realized Effingham County has a tremendous amount to offer for an ambitious youngster growing up in our area, and that the Effingham community is an outstanding place to own a business and raise a family.” Riley will be attending Lake Land College in the fall for two years, then transferring to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to pursue a degree in marketing.
