Craig Lindvahl
Executive Director Email: Craig Lindvahl - Executive Director Craig Lindvahl is a nationally recognized educator and filmmaker. In more than thirty years of teaching, he has taught every grade k-12, and his work as a filmmaker and musician has taken him to nearly 20 countries and allowed him to work with young people from more than 25 countries. His television work is regularly seen on PBS stations around the country, and his most recent documentaries, including a behind-the-scenes look at the Cincinnati Reds, have enjoyed a run on the Major League Baseball Network. He is the recipient of twelve Mid America Emmy Awards and eleven Telly Awards, for producing, writing, camera work, and composing, as well as the Studs Terkel Award for contributions to the humanities. He is a recipient of the prestigious Milken National Educator Award and has twice been recognized as a finalist for Illinois Teacher of the year. In addition to being honored for excellence in teaching by a number of universities, he was also honored with a "Leaders in Learning" Award from the cable television industry and a distinguished educator award from Eastern Illinois University. Along with his teaching partner, former Illinois Teacher of the Year Joe Fatheree, Lindvahl has participated in a number of groundbreaking educational endeavors, including the establishment of a nationally known filmmaking program and the CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) class, a multi-district entrepreneurship class funded almost entirely by business investors. As a result of his work with the innovative CEO class in Effingham, Illinois, he was recently named the Illinois "teacher-preneur" of the year.

This is what hooked me from the second I spoke with Craig Lindvahl, Executive Director for the Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship, over the phone less than a year ago.
When you talk to people who know CEO, are apart of CEO and have lived CEO, you can feel it. Our students and the other 695 students who have been in a CEO program in the country have had this opportunity because of Craig. Hundreds if students are gaining real world experiences, doing real work, and building networks with successful business people. Students are starting real businesses and, yes, dancing in the rain in their suits to celebrate first successes. We received some pretty tough news on Tuesday during class. Craig shared with us in his weekly vlog that he has stage IV pancreatic cancer. He brushed over his cancer news and went on to ask our students to continue all of the great work they are doing and to make CEO proud. "Here's the thing, if people don't hear it from me, they only get a chance to be sad," he explained. A longtime teacher, award-winning filmmaker and creator of the CEO entrepreneurship program, Lindvahl was named the EDN 2015 Citizen of the Year in January. His ideas, perspective and vision for developing future leaders and entrepreneurs is life changing. "In my 35 years of teaching, students have come back and shared what they learned from me," Lindvahl said. "It's not the content from the course they remember. They remember the life lessons." Lindvahl shared that it takes seeking to understand others to be successful. He also believes very strongly in living a life beyond ourselves. Thank you Craig and thank you CEO. "Every great teacher teaches the same lesson. How to be successful." Quotes included in the article are from Author Interview: Craig Lindvahl by Jeremy Rinkel and from Craig's blog [cached]
