Garner Industries named Visionary Partner following the company’s $10,000 gift to the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools. Garner, a manufacturing company located in Lincoln, Nebraska, joins the ranks of Ameritas, Assurity, Capital One, and others with this contribution.

“Garner Industries is committed to the local Lincoln community and the education of our citizens. As a small business, Garner is reliant on a talented and educated local workforce for all aspects of our business management and manufacturing production,” stated Scott McLain, CEO of Garner Industries. “Supporting the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools and their mission will help students and our company meet their best potential.”

As a corporate partner, Garner Industries will aid the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools, helping to ensure that all students have access to additional opportunities beyond what is provided through tax dollars. 

“No two kids are alike; they all need access to different opportunities in their formative years to be successful as adults,” Wendy DeLaCastro president of the Foundation stated. “At the Foundation we like to say we have more than 42,000 mission statements, one for each student at LPS. To do our work we raise funds to lift up students and remove barriers to learning so they come to the classroom ready to learn, as well as, fund experiences that challenge students and grow their minds. Garner’s gift helps us do all that.”
