Duke Energy gives grant to schools


Duke Energy awarded $25,000 to the Monroe County Community School Corporation’s
Afterschool EdVentures program, providing funding for after-school programs for students in the school district’s six Title I elementary schools.

“We are thrilled to be the recipient of such a generous and timely grant, Tim Pritchett, MCCSC director of school age care, said in a press release. “Our programs are committed to afterschool enrichment, particularly in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math as well as academic support in all areas of the school curriculum. Duke Energy’s gift will enable us to continue offering high-quality, innovative programs in our afterschool settings.”

Bruce Calloway,  south central district manager for Duke Energy, said some hours after school can be critical, especially for low-income working families looking for a safe, free place for their children to stay.

“EdVentures makes those hours count with quality math, science and technology programming that engages students,” Calloway said in the release. “We’re proud to support it.”
