Stephen Hightower, president and CEO of Hightowers Petroleum Co., will reflect on leveraging life's opportunities to grow business and life at this luncheon on the Miami University Middletown campus.
A self-made entrepreneur, Hightower expanded his Ohio-based fuel distribution company into an inspirational energy solutions enterprise covering the entire energy value chain, from petroleum supply to energy solutions. Hightower served at the pleasure of former President Barack Obama and was re-confirmed by President Donald Trump with two appointments: the Department of Interior, National Park Foundation, and the Department of Energy's National Petroleum Council.
Before the presentation, donors to the African American Education Fund of Middletown and the Harry Bell Education Fund will be recognized. Each fund supports students in the Early College Academy Program.
There is no cost to attend; however, attendees will be invited to contribute to the African American Education Fund that supports Middletown High School students. The luncheon begins at 11:30am, and the program will begin at noon.
