Western Christian High School Awarded Funds
Western Christian High School in Hull was recently awarded matching grants from Alceco, a farmer-owned cooperative, and the Land O’Lakes Foundation.
The organization was awarded a total of $1,500, which will be used toward the purchase of equipment for the ag metals and welding class at the high school. Western Christian High School began an ag program last year, and has 65 students involved in FFA.
Albert City Elevator, A Cooperative (Alceco), dates back to 1925. The original Farmers Elevator Company was created as a stock company in 1905 and reorganized as a cooperative 20 years later. Today, Alceco continues to thrive as the farmer-owned cooperative partner of Ag Partners, L.L.C. The Land O’ Lakes Foundation match program matches dollar-for-dollar the cash donation of member cooperatives. For more information on Alceco, visit www.alceco.com.
