WIU Receives $50,000 from State Farm

Bloomington’s State Farm has given $50,000 to Western Illinois University’s Business and Technology Program.

The money will go towards a new classroom lab that will include an 80-inch flat screen monitor, and deal with things like apps, 3-D graphics, and other forms of digital media.

WIU Alum and State Farm Assistant Vice President for Corporate Systems, Bill Miller, says there’s more than one purpose for State Farm’s partnership with Western….

“We want to identify students and graduates from Western Illinois that are potential State Farm employees, and can make a difference for state farm customers. On the same hand, we also want to help Western prepare students for post graduation.”
