The John Wood Community College Ag Science Complex has received a generous donation of $60,000 from Farm Credit Illinois to purchase new bleachers for their show room. This addition will greatly aid in the setup for livestock shows and reduce stress associated with the process. The bleachers can accommodate up to 320 people, providing ample seating for attendees.
Farm Credit Illinois President and CEO Aaron Johnsons stated that their contribution was a way to support farm families in southern Illinois and contribute to the completion of the facility. He emphasized that this donation aligns with their goal of supporting agriculture in the region.
JWCC President Bryan Renfro expressed his appreciation for the community’s support, highlighting the care and concern shown by those in the area. He acknowledged that this funding will have a significant impact on the Ag Science Complex and its ability to host successful livestock shows and events.
