FREEPORT — Vita Plus Corporation has made a donation of $5,000 to the Highland Community College agriculture program through the HCC Foundation.
HCC agriculture students and instructors visited the Vita Plus Feed Mill in Lanark, Illinois on November 13, to be a part of the official announcement of the gift and the check presentation. Following the presentation, the Vita Plus team led the students on an informative tour of their facilities.

The success of our students is greatly dependent upon positive working relationships like this one.”
