AgWest Farm Credit Donates $256,870 for Montana Class C Schools' Shot Clocks

January 27, 2023

AgWest Farm Credit donated $256,870 for shot clocks of Class C Montana schools following a new rule voted on last year by the Montana High School Association requiring all Montana schools to implement 35-second shot clocks for the 2022-2023 basketball season.

“We are excited for the opportunity to invest in so many of our Montana Class C schools and their student athletes. As someone that grew up and is raising my own family in rural Montana, I am passionate that we advocate and protect the hopes and dreams of our rural communities,” said AgWest Montana State President Megan Shroyer.

This donation is part of the 2022 Local Advisory Committees’ (LAC) Stewardship Initiative, an investment of $4 million to 98 projects throughout the area guided by LAC members, who serve as a liaison between AgWest and their customers and communities. This project was recommended by LAC member Dusty Berwick.

“As a member of a rural community, it is not uncommon to see small schools struggle as they figure out how to make ends meet. The cost of shot clocks was more than many of these schools could fit in their budget. I am honored to be an LAC member for this organization that cares so much about the communities they serve,” said Dusty Berwick.
