State Farm recently donated an additional $16,000 to The College Promise at Aims Community College, bringing the company's total investment in this grassroots scholarship program to more than $50,000. The College Promise was started in 2008 by local business leaders, with the aim of supporting students from Greeley-Evans School District 6 schools who attend Aims Community College following high school graduation. The scholarship provides financial support for tuition and books, up to $2,500. To date, more than 300 students have benefited from the fund. "State Farm supports a variety of education initiatives across the country and we are proud to include The College Promise scholarship program on our list," said State Farm Vice President-Operations Troy Turner. "Because of the program, more students have the opportunity to continue their education and gain the skills and knowledge necessary to secure a better future." "We are so very fortunate to have companies like State Farm as our neighbors," said Aims Foundation Director Julie Buderus. "This gift is an example of their investment in our community, our students and our future."
