Perdue supports Daviess County Latino Learning Center with $10,000 grant

WASHINGTON, IND. -- Building upon its ongoing support of education and improving quality of life in the communities in which it operates, Perdue Incorporated, through the Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, recently presented a $10,000 grant to the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service to support the continuing education programs at the Daviess County Latino Learning Center in Washington.


Marc Maynard, director of operations at Perdue's Washington turkey processing complex, presented the donation to Jennifer Stefancik, Purdue University Extension educator for Daviess County, and Lynne Kiesel, facilitator for the Latino Community Learning Center.


“The Latino Learning Center has a proven track record of providing positive life changes for Latinos and training to help them obtain employment and earn promotions within the local business community," said Maynard. "In fact, a number of associates at Perdue have directly benefitted from the Learning Center training programs."


“We are so grateful for Perdue's support to continue providing valuable online life skills training for the Latino community," said Kiesel. "These educational opportunities help enhance the personal and professional abilities of members of the Latino community while improving their quality of living as well as personal and financial independence."
