CEO student Katie Whightsel was named "Entrepreneur of the Year" in a vote of her fellow students. Whightsel operates "Rosie's Remedy", an aromatherapy pet product that sooths and comforts your pet.
The evening concluded with a showing of the Craig Lindvahl-produced documentary, "Let's Get Ready to Win", that was filmed during the Cincinnati Reds' 2010 playoff run, as well as a raffle and auction of Reds' merchandise.
There were some junior entrepreneurs on hand, as well. Members of Darlene Fatheree's class at Southside School were back after a one-year hiatus with lemonade for trade show goers.
