Previous attendees have had good things to say about the conference and the educational opportunities available to them.
"All of the information presented at the conference was extremely useful. I was glad that time was taken to go through the tool kit and ideas on how to incorporate the materials were shown to us. I felt like I was learning and getting activities to use in my classroom every minute that I was there. I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to attend and grateful for WFEC making it possible for me to do so," said Haley Burdeshaw, a K-8 teacher at Project Venture in Jackson County.
"One of our founding principles as a cooperative is providing education and learning to our members," said Ty Peel, WFEC Executive Vice President & CEO. "It's important for us to invest in our community's teachers because they are investing in the future of our country by educating our children. We're proud to have this opportunity to provide scholarships to educators from our local schools."
The co-op will provide scholarships for local educators to the Empower Energy Education Workshop this summer. If you are a teacher in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson or Washington County, contact your school district's curriculum coordinator or Candace Croft (firstname.lastname@example.org) at West Florida Electric for more information. Availability is limited. The deadline to apply is February 28, 2022.
