Palmetto Awards 55 Teachers $48,810 in Grants

Palmetto Electric Trust and Palmetto Electric Cooperative awarded $44,907 to winning teachers and their team members through the Bright Ideas grant program. The prize team visited classrooms and awarded grants on October 29, (Beaufort County), October 30, (Jasper County) and October 31, (Hampton County).

Fifty deserving teachers were surprised in their classrooms, for their innovative projects with titles ranging from “Raptors and Reptiles” to “I’ve Got the Power” to “My School Got Shrunk”.

Later this month, the cooperative will host a recognition’s luncheon at Palmetto Electric’s New River facility to honor the recipients and their administrators.
