To show the true impact of a $2,500 donation, McLean County farmer Gloria Stevens directed a donation to Le Roy Elementary School, where the funds will be used to engage students and families in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education.  Le Roy Elementary School believes providing STEM opportunities and exposure strengthens critical and creative thinking skills that are essential in a modern workforce.
