About Me

Chanel Pals is a senior attending Teutopolis High School. She is a part of the National Honor Society, and she helps out with Drama Club. While she is still unsure of where she will be attending college, she is very eager to see what the future holds for her. She works part-time at Effingham’s Village Square Mall movie theatre, where she uncovered her interest in business. In her free time, she enjoys reading and socializing with friends and family.

“I am excited about getting a first-hand look into the business world within my own community. I expect to learn several useful skills that will surely ready me for a successful business career."

About My Business

Chanel Pals has started Cuello, a producer of handmade, copper necklaces. Each piece is simple enough for everyday wear, yet nice enough to accessorize a dressier outfit. The CEO class has not only given Chanel the opportunity to start her own business, it has helped her grow in all aspects as a person. It has sharpened her communication skills, increased her attention to detail, and has taught her to ask questions. Through the people she has met and the experiences she has been part of in the past year, Chanel is now able to confidently run her own business. Chanel will be furthering her business education at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and then, on to law school. Contact Chanel at
