State Farm Insurance is giving Heartland Community College $383,000 to support three workplace preparedness programs involving short-term certificates and career coaching.
The money is intended to boost the number of people with specific skills such as blood drawing, truck driving, and pharmacy tech work over two years.
State Farm Human Resources Vice President Annette Martinez said for years, State Farm has proudly maintained strong relationships with local educational institutions, including Heartland.
"This is the company's latest effort to help support the professional and educational needs of our community and make a sustained, positive difference in the lives of people in the Bloomington-Normal area,” said Martinez.
