AppsCo employees show the community what they've accomplished so far this year

Richwoods High School students got to show their progress so far with AppsCo.

The non-profit teaches the students how to create apps for local companies and the funds raised go to Peoria Public Schools.

Peoria leaders, parents and friends came out to the Peoria Riverfront Museum Saturday to see what the students have accomplished so far with AppsCo, and their parents couldn't be happier with what they've accomplished through the program.

Cheri Hirschmann is an AppsCo employee's mother. She says, "To me as a parent, that was exciting for me, that she was learning something, that she was hanging out with not only students and teachers, but actual business people from the community that were pouring into her."

The AppsCo employees say they’re excited and looking forward to the future of what else they can do with AppsCo.
