JBS USA Gift Will Help High School Train Future Health Care Workers

JBS USA has contributed $500,000 to the Academy of Medical Science Program at Grand Island Senior High School. The program has a total budget of $5.1 million. The Academy of Medical Sciences Program is one of six academies at Grand Island Senior High. The school is developing a new program on the 8th floor of the CHI Health St. Francis medical facility, which will serve 465 high school juniors and seniors (many of whom are the children of JBS team members) who are working to earn a CM license.

Partner: Grand Island Public Schools and CHI Health St. Francis

Target Completion Date: Fall 2022

During the coronavirus pandemic, JBS USA has been a community partner and generously donated beef to local food banks and also provided leadership and innovation on worker safety and plant management. The Hometown Strong initiative continues JBS USA’s commitment to our community and our future, and we look forward to a wonderful community partnership.
