MATTOON, IL -(Effingham Radio)- John Deere donates equipment to Lake Land College.
The Agriculture Division at Lake Land received a donation of $100,000 worth of John Deere equipment recovered from Houston, Texas.
Due to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey last year, the equipment was unable to be sold to customers.
As a result, John Deere decided to donate the equipment to be used for student training in 17 North American schools, including Lake Land College.
The John Deere Tech program is offered through a partnership between John Deere and Lake Land; making it one of the few programs in the country that offers students first-hand experience working at a John Deere dealership.
