Youth Leadership Summit

Jay Sanders, community relations coordinator just came back from the Youth Leadership Summit, March 3 – 6. He explains, “It’s a yearly event we sponsor that allows two deserving students from 20 area high schools to take a hands-on look at state government, learn networking and leadership skills and develop a better understanding of their local electric cooperatives.” Part of the trip also includes meaningful interaction with student leaders from other parts of the state.

SharingChange Scholarships Changes Lives

Each year, MTEMC’s SharingChange foundation funds ten $2,000 scholarships for students in our cooperatives service area. Students complete an application form and write an essay stating how the scholarship would benefit them. The scholarship applicants are judged on a point system, which includes a financial needs assessment, grade point average, community involvement, service leadership and an essay score. 

MTEMC meets community needs all year long

Among the benefits of electric cooperative membership, one shines brightly at this time of year: Concern for Community.

One of the Seven Cooperative Principles by which Middle Tennessee Electric operates, community concern is important as we strive to be more than a power supplier. On pages 22 and 23 of the November issue of The Tennessee Magazine, readers can find examples of our commitment in action.
