Contributing to the Adams County CEO Program

Sharing History, Answering Questions

The owners of Dale Koontz - Builder, Inc. had the chance to host the students of the Adams County CEO program on Tuesday morning, September 28.  Instructor Roger Leenerts brought the CEO group to a Quincy job site in order to learn up close and personal about the residential construction business.

Students quizzed Tim, Scott and Matthew Koontz about a variety of topics related to the industry and to the specific family business.  "It's always fun to get to share some stories about how our business got to be where it is," said Scott Koontz, "and these CEO students always are very sharp young people".

The CEO program is in its 2nd year here in Adams County.  Entrepreneurship education seeks to prepare people, especially youth, to be responsible, enterprising individuals who become entrepreneurs or entrepreneurial thinkers and contribute to economic development and sustainable communities.
