Donation will provide for technology upgrades for IVCC ag program

The Compeer Financial Fund for Rural America recently made a $5,000 donation to provide technology upgrades for Illinois Valley Community College’s agriculture program. Compeer insurance officer Ryan Leifheit (left) of Ottawa presented a symbolic check to IVCC President Jerry Corcoran and co-coordinators of the ag program, Willard Mott and Kathryn Lillie. The gift was facilitated by Karen Blatter-Schieler of the Compeer Financial Fund for America and Strategic Relationships of Normal. “Compeer has a tremendous reputation in the rural community,” said Corcoran. “Receiving their generous support for our new agriculture program affirms our mission is aligned with theirs in the areas of education, environment, technology and quality of life.”
