The Crook County employer is giving 100-thousand to Crook County High School and 82-thousand to the Crook County Foundation.

 

Lee Weinstein with Facebook says they want to give back to the community they live in.

 

"We need new students graduating who can go into technology jobs.  It's a fast growing sector and not a lot of people are qualified for these technology jobs.  We need more people in the science, technology and engineering fields.  We had a couple of interns at the Prineville plant and they're now going to pursue technology careers."

 

The 100-thousand dolalrs for the high school will go toward the STEM program, which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.

 

The funds for the foundation will fund an economic sutdy on tyring to increase area tourism.
