Chad Cargill – CEO of Cargill Consulting
During high school Chad knew he needed to win scholarships in order to attend Oklahoma State University. Chad’s Freshman year in high school, he discovered that many scholarships were based on ACT scores and the journey was on.
He took the ACT a total of 18 times in high school raising his score from a 19 to a 32.
After graduating high school, Chad went back to his high school to tell some of the students what he learned from the test. When the results of those students’ tests were very positive, the counselor asked if he would come back to tell more students what he had learned. After a few cycles of helping students at his alma-mater, other schools began hearing about the workshop. Now Chad travels full-time across the country giving his workshop.
In the 2012-2013 school year alone, Chad gave his 3 hour Test Prep and Character Building Workshop 158 times to 10,648 high school students throughout the midwest.
