Ty Litzelman

About Me

My name is Ty Litzelman and I am currently 16 and a junior from Newton Community High School. I am very excited to be a part of the 2015-2016 CEO class with such a great group of people. Outside of class I am active in both academic and athletic organizations. Out of the six clubs I take part in, I have learned the most from student council, being highly active in not only the high school level, but district and state levels as well. I plan to apply the leadership skills learned in student council to CEO to help make this class successful. Jasper CEO drew my attention mostly because I saw how last year's students were transformed into mature, business-like young adults. Witnessing their transformation made me realize that I want more than to sit in class and read out of a textbook. I want to be in hands-on situations that are not available in normal classes. I'm excited to see how well this group will work together. I'm not sure where this class will take me, but I know that it will open new doors while expanding my knowledge as a future entrepreneur.
