Howard Electric is proud to have had a presence in local schools for numerous years teaching electrical safety to our future members.  It came to our attention that, in addition to electrical safety, we could help provide information on Today’s Energy to our local educators. To meet this need Central Electric Power Cooperative, made it possible to offer Energy in Today’s Classroom and it has been offered annually since 2013. 

This 2 day course will be held August 1st and 2nd, 2023 at the Courtyard by Marriott in Jefferson City.  The class will consist of energy topics including Energy Basics, Power Generation, Energy Efficiency, Energy Sources, Economics and Energy Production, and a Power Generation tour.

This class counts towards 15 hours of professional development and educators in the middle school and high school grades who have a background in science, math, agricultural science and building trades are ideal candidates for this course. Howard Electric Cooperative, working with Central Electric, will cover all the expenses for the course for 3 teachers working at schools in and surrounding Howard Electric Cooperative’s service area.  The scholarship will cover ALL expenses including meals, instructional material, and lodging if needed.  

Howard Electric encourages all teachers actively teaching in both private and public schools within the Fayette, Glasgow, Harrisburg, Higbee, New Franklin, Salisbury, and Westran school districts to apply.
