CEL turns 10!
Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) celebrated its 10th anniversary at SCH Academy on May 12, 2022. Leading up to this celebration we have been featuring current venture accelerator students, alumni of the program, and thought leaders who have had a hand at shaping the space into what it is today.
Over the past 10 years, the Sands Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) has become a cornerstone of the SCH educational experience. It is a program as substantial in its educational content as in its inspirational impact. In celebration of the CEL's 10th anniversary coming this May, we are publishing a commemorative booklet with the voices of those thought leaders who have had a role in shaping the CEL since its inception. We look forward to sharing these articles leading up to CEL’s milestone event as it continues to provide opportunity, devise creative solutions, effect positive change, and more for the future of education at SCH Academy.
