About Me

August Laatsch is a senior at Altamont High School. He enjoys participating in various activities such as Scholastic Bowl, being president of the National Honor Society, and managing the girls’ basketball team. In his time outside of school, August enjoys hanging out with friends and family and spending time with his pets. He also works at Firefly Grill as a busser and food runner.  August is currently undecided on what to study at college, and he hopes the CEO program will help him find the inspiration for what career he would like to pursue.

“I am grateful to be a part of the 2019 CEO Class. I look forward to the opportunity to learn from all the people involved with CEO, including classmates, facilitators, investors, mentors, and business owners.”
