The funds will be placed in the CTE Academy Foundation, a fund at the Community Foundation of Jo Daviess County.

“This amazing gift kicks off our campaign with a bang! Said Kris Hall, CTE Academy Director. “It’s a great incentive for other members of the community and our alumni to get involved. We are very fortunate to have such incredible support in the community.” This gift follows news from just a couple of weeks ago
