Case Farms, a local poultry farming and processing group, has made a $100,000 donation to the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) to support the school’s second campus in Morganton.
Case Farms’ $100,000 gift will help fund the development of the second campus that is set to open in 2021. The western campus will help provide a cutting-edge education for high schoolers across North Carolina.
“We are so grateful for Case Farms’ investment in our new Morganton campus, which serves as another example of the incredible support we are receiving from the local community,” said Kevin Baxter, Director of Western Campus Planning for NCSSM. “We are thrilled to build our new campus in Morganton, which will help bring more STEM opportunities to hundreds of students across the state and support economic development in the region.”
Headquartered in Troutman, North Carolina, Case Farms has a number of facilities around the Tar Heel State.
“We are honored to help fund this new campus and support the school’s vision of mentoring the next generation of leaders,” said Charles Rigdon, senior vice president of operations at Case Farms. “Case Farms recognizes the importance of education and we hope our donation will help provide opportunities for students in this community and across North Carolina for years to come.”
Founded in 1980 as the first of its kind, NCSSM is a two-year, public residential high school located in Durham, North Carolina. Their mission is to educate and inspire academically gifted students to become leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
