Heartland Bank donates to IVCC center

Heartland Bank and Trust Co. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Fred L. Drake (right) presents a $2,500 check on April 9 to IVCC President Jerry Corcoran (left) for the Illinois Valley Community College Peter Miller Community Technology Center capital campaign. The donation comes from the Heartland Bank Community Reinvestment Fund. Heartland is also working with IVCC to establish a scholarship. “It has been great to see how many local banks have demonstrated their financial support of IVCC’s state-of-the-art Peter Miller Community Technology Center as we prepare for its grand opening in the fall semester,” said Corcoran. “After meeting with Mr. Drake, it is clear Heartland Bank is committed to excellence in postsecondary education for everyone in the IVCC district.”
