Pointe Coupee Electric
Teachers whose schools are within a community served by Pointe Coupee Electric and whose students’ homes or parents’ businesses are served by the Cooperative are eligible for educational grants under an educational program sponsored by the Co-op. According to Myron A. Lambert, General Manager of the company, youth and education are a top priority of the Co-op. Lambert states, “Pointe Coupee Electric is totally committed to our members and continually strives to improve the quality of life in the communities in which we serve. The welfare and education of our youth are naturally some of our top priorities.”
To qualify for a donation, each adopted school must submit a written plan for an educational program that they would implement or expand. Only academic programs can qualify for one of these mini-grants.
On November 1, 2017 Pointe Coupee Electric hosted a luncheon and awarded educational mini-grants to its adopted schools throughout Iberville, Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge Parishes. The funds were presented to the school principals and/or school representatives in each of the three parishes.
