Eureka College Students Receive Caterpillar Honor

A pair of Eureka College business students were recently the recipients of awards from Caterpillar. Jesse Burford and Chet Griffith were on the winning team for the Fall 2017 Intern Case Competition on Nov. 13, covering Blockchain Technology within Caterpillar.

The case was judged on research, innovation, communication, teamwork, recommendation and overall question-and-answer dialogue. Judges were comprised of three Caterpillar Finance & Information Technology leaders.

As part of the recognition, Caterpillar donated $1,000 to the team’s charitable organization of choice — The Children’s Hospital of Illinois.
