MaxYield Cooperative made a contribution of $3500 on behalf of CoBank to the Algona FFA Chapter. The check, presented to advisor Betsy Becker, will assist the FFA chapter and agriculture education program in updating LabQuest learning sensors and equipment. The new sensors will give agriculture students an enhanced hands-on experience in the classroom.
“MaxYield Cooperative is proud facilitate CoBank’s assistance to the Algona FFA and agricultural education program in updating and improving their equipment,” said Emily Campbell, Talent Recruitment and Communications Specialist at MaxYield. “As an FFA alumna, myself and many team members at MaxYield are well aware of the important experiences students gain in premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education and FFA. We are pleased to share in the chapter’s success.”
The funds were provided through CoBank’s “Sharing Success” program, which provides contributions through cooperatives to local nonprofit organizations. CoBank provides loans, leases, and financial services to agribusinesses and rural power, water and communications providers in all 50 states.
