SECO Energy’s back-to-school program allocated Sumter County Schools Enhancement Foundation $3,000 for the county’s use in educational initiatives. As a not-for-profit local electric cooperative, SECO believes in supporting the communities it serves.
The Sumter Schools Enhancement Foundation is a non-profit organization that enhances educational opportunities for students by providing incentives for achievement, helping students in need, and awarding scholarships to seniors to promote lasting success through higher education.
Executive Director, Sumter Schools Enhancement Foundation Eileen Goodson said, “The Foundation is thankful to receive this generous donation from our SECO community partner. From post-it notes to a pair of shoes that really fit a child, schools always have needs beyond their budgets. The SECO donation will be used to meet the needs for our homeless and most needy students, and to help students at each school get settled into a strong school year with proper supplies and materials.”
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 be among Sumter 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.”
