  • Deere foundation donates $250,000 to McLeod Center


    CEDAR FALLS (AP) --- The John Deere Foundation has donated $250,000 to University of Northern Iowa's sports and events center, school officials said Friday.

    The McLeod Center will be home to Panther basketball and volleyball as well as concerts and trade shows.
    "We're not an ordinary school," said Fort. "We have tradition. We have a good team year after year. We rebuild, and it doesn't matter who we have coming back."

      This is fantastic! I would love to see Deere get more involved with UNI. UNI always sends a ton of graduates to Deere, but you really don't hear too much about Deere donating money to the university (or advertisement/signage in the Dome). This is a great outreach for Deere to make, and it helps us get that much closer to getting a nicer McLeod Center!!! Go Panthers! And Go John Deere!!!
      The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice, clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. Fire goes before Him, and consumes his foes on every side; His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles; the mountains melt like wax before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim His righteousness and all peoples will see His glory.

        with my father and grandfather having worked for Deere their entire lives it seems...i love the fact that Deere is now more associated with UNI athletics. it is a great company that should give back to a school that gives them a lot of top-quality employees....
