Elevate Kentucky Class of 2019

Great first session in Owensboro!

The Elevate Class of 2019 kicked off last month in Owensboro. The twenty-five class members explored the waterfront and multi-million dollar park in downtown, learned about themselves as a leader with their Predictive Index results with the Oliver Group, toured UniFirst and focused on how to become the "CEO of YOU" from Coach Colene. Check out the highlight video and read more below. Elevate meets again in Prestonsburg on May 16th!
