Company donates $30K to local school corporations to help further STEM education
Endress+Hauser donates a total of $30,000 to Center Grove, Clark-Pleasant, Franklin and Greenwood schools’ education foundations.

“Our company actively invests in the next generation’s education,” said Brandyn Ferguson, Vice President of Human Resources, Endress+Hauser. “With these classroom grants we are helping to fund those cool and creative ideas that teachers everywhere have, but too often lack the resources to bring to life.
