PowerSouth is committed to programs and partnerships that provide support for teachers and students as a means of improving student achievement,” PowerSouth communications manager Mark Ingram said.

Ingram said employees also will provide school supplies to teachers at other schools in the area.

“PowerSouth recognizes the critical role education plays in our economic success,” Ingram said. “Good, strong school systems encourage people to settle in our region because industries are more apt to locate in areas that are attractive to potential employees. Also, a well-educated population tends to spark community activism and involvement. Good schools cause our neighborhoods to become more vibrant, and our citizens to become more active.”

PowerSouth employees also volunteer their time to schools in Andalusia, Opp and throughout the county.
