August 19, 2021 – SECO Energy’s back-to-school program allocated Marion County Public Schools with $3,000 for the Public Education Foundation of Marion County. The funds will support teacher requests for support of STEM-related projects in the classroom. As a not-for-profit local electric cooperative, SECO believes in supporting the communities it serves.
The Public Education Foundation of Marion County’s mission is to financially and materially support Marion County Public Schools, its students and teachers. Meghan Magamoll, Executive Director stated, “We are grateful for SECO Energy’s commitment to supporting educational STEM projects in Marion County. Through the Public Education Foundation’s Grants for Great Ideas program, SECO Energy’s generous donation will be matched dollar for dollar to double the impact in our schools.”
SECO Energy Sr. Consultant for Civic, Charitable and Government Relations Kathy Judkins states, “SECO is proud to partner with local school districts to fund projects related to STEM. We know our future workforce may likely be among Marion County students, and we want to ensure they know that SECO is community focused and that potential employment opportunities await them after high school, technical school or college.”
