CoServ Electric recently donated $30,000 to the Lewisville Education Foundation.
Tracee Elrod, CoServ Area Manager, presented the check at the foundation’s March 21 board meeting.
“It’s gratifying to partner with such a wonderful foundation that impacts the futures of our local youth,” Elrod said. “It also underscores one of the seven principles of cooperatives–concern for the community.”
Lewisville Education Foundation’s mission is to enrich the quality of public education in the 13 communities served by the LISD by being a vehicle for securing private funding benefiting students and teachers, according to Connie Pelphrey, Executive Director of the non-profit foundation.
“In 2011 more than 80 LISD teachers and counselors were able to put their ideas to work to create engaging, innovative experiences for their students with the help of LEF Teacher and Campus Grants,” said Pelphrey.
She said that 185 LISD graduating seniors continued their education with the help of LEF scholarships.
“Some of these students indicated that without LEF’s help they may not have been able to further their education and dreams.”
Elrod added, “CoServ is pleased to be in a position where we can support academic endeavors in our communities. Whether it’s awarding scholarships to our Members’ students, delivering books and supplies to Adopt-A-School recipients, or sponsoring a solar-powered car at Liberty Christian School, CoServ believes in making a difference in the lives of local students.”
