Our Generous Donors 

A capital fundraising campaign will be kicking off soon and is off to a strong start thanks to an initial $50,000 gift made by Barbara Davis of Batavia in memory of her family’s farming history, particularly her grandparents Walley and Fannie Davis.

We're grateful to all of the campaign donors who believe in IVCC's Ag program, without whom the Agriculture Complex would not be possible. We look forward to Growing Forward together.

Dr. Jennifer Timmers joined the IVCC Agriculture department as an instructor and program co-coordinator in the fall of 2022.  While not from a farming background, Jennifer was introduced to agriculture while working on her Bachelor's degree in Biology at Berea College where she worked on the college farm. This sparked an interest that resulted in her pursuit of her Master's in Agriculture from Western Kentucky University before moving to Florida to earn her Ph.D. in Agronomy from the University of Florida. Jennifer's primary agricultural interests lie in crop ecophysiology. Originally from Kentucky, she's excited to now be part of the thriving community of Illinois Valley Community College and is excited to help the Agriculture Department grow.
