Greater Clark County Schools is pleased to announce that the Duke Energy Foundation awarded Spring Hill Elementary with a $15,647 grant to fund a summer remediation reading program. The Duke Energy Foundation believes that literacy is a major part of student success and it affects a student’s education in all subject areas. Developing young, successful readers can have an impact beyond the individual student and extend into the community.
In Indiana, the Duke Energy Foundation invests approximately $2 million annually for community support and charitable contributions. “Charitable giving is just one of the ways that Duke Energy is committed to the communities it serves,” stated Lisa Brones Huber, Duke Energy Government and Community Relations Manager for Southern Indiana. “Literacy is one of our funding and we’re excited to partner with our schools to help students succeed.”

Students received a hat on their first day of the reading camp and will add a new pin to their hat each day they attend.
