In celebrating the 175 years of producing agricultural equipment for the nation and world this year, Case IH is making $25,000 donations to schools in the communities where they have manufacturing plants.

Benson High School in Benson, Minn. was one of the schools that received a check from Case IH with the presentation ceremony taking place at the high school last Tuesday. It was attended by Benson Case staff, including plant manager Jason Hausauer, BHS students, and high school staff.

The $25,000 donation to BHS will go toward the machining and welding classes. Case has a program through which it employs students at the high school, training them in welding and machining skills.
