YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

 

Each year Southern Pine Electric sponsors two high school juniors from within our service area to attend both the Mississippi Youth Leadership Workshop and Washington DC Youth Tour. This program is an excellent opportunity for our youth to become acquainted with electric power associations, learn how cooperatives operate within our region and sharpen their leadership skills.

 

The Mississippi Youth Leadership Workshop is held in Jackson, Mississippi typically in March. The Washington DC Youth Tour is typically in June. High school principals and guidance counselors are encouraged to nominate one 11th grade student from their school-who receives electric service from Southern Pine Electric to submit an essay on a topic selected by Southern Pine Electric.

Southern Pine Electric places a strong value on working to make our communities a better place to live. One of the ways it achieves this is through its Adopt-a-School program. Every year, Southern Pine chooses a school in its service territory to work hand-in-hand with teachers, providing resources and participating in activities.

 

Each year, at its Annual Meeting, Southern Pine will announce the selection of a new school.

Southern Pine has been a great partner for our school. Their commitment to the students through teaching safety and promoting education have been instrumental to our school’s growth. They have also helped expose our students to the cooperative world, showcasing cooperative principles and the importance of being a member in a cooperative.
