Stephenson County Farm Bureau donates $10,000 in support of HCC'S Agriculture Program
4/21/2016

The Stephenson County Farm Bureau (SCFB) recently made a generous donation of $10,000 to the Highland Community College Foundation, to be used as needed in the College's Agriculture program. For the past two academic years, the program has been in a period of expansion and enhancement under the direction of instructor, Justin Ebert.

According to SCFB Manager Bruce Johnson, "Justin came and spoke to our board last fall and we were quite impressed with all that is happening with HCC Ag right now. We are pleased to show our support with a donation to help keep the positive momentum going."

To ensure that the agriculture program continues to provide a quality education to HCC students, Ebert has identified several areas of need that include equipment, technology, supplies, curricular improvements, and co-curricular activities. Donations such as the one received from the Stephenson County Farm Bureau will go a long way toward continuing the high level of excellence in agriculture education at Highland.
