November 11, 2013 -  By

The Toro Co. solidified its partnership with the Irrigation Foundation, as the 2014 Irrigation E3 Program sponsor, with the presentation of a $20,000 check to the foundation Nov. 7 at the Irrigation Show & Education Conference in Austin, Texas.

“The Irrigation Foundation is looking forward to partnering with Toro in the continued success of our unique Irrigation E3 Program, which sends promising students and influential educators to the Irrigation Show,” said Steve McCoon of Nelson Irrigation Corp. and current chair of the foundation. “The foundation is grateful for Toro’s support and excited to see our work with students really resonates with them.”

The Irrigation E3 Program focuses on exposure, experience and education as the primary means for creating interest in irrigation career opportunities. Students and educators selected for the program receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Irrigation Show, where they participate in education classes, interact with the latest technologies, network with industry leaders and gain a real-life perspective of the irrigation industry.

“Toro is a proud supporter of this initiative and feels there is real value to having students interact with our industry on a face-to-face basis,” said Judson McNeil, president of The Toro Foundation, Toro’s charitable giving program. “The Irrigation Show is one of the best places for future leaders in our industry to establish meaningful relationships and walk away with a comprehensive impression of the irrigation industry.”

As the 2014 Irrigation E3 sponsor, Toro and the E3 participants will have the opportunity to build relationships and network at the 2014 Irrigation Show in Phoenix.
