Attica, OH— North Central Electric Cooperative, in partnership with CoBank, a national cooperative bank, is proud to announce a $10,000 grant to the Mohawk Local School District.
The funds provided by North Central and CoBank will help the school district purchase and install new security measures on several gates around the campus where students frequently walk and that are access points away from the primary school buildings. This additional level of security on campus will increase the overall safety of students and staff, among other improvements.
This grant marks the second time North Central and CoBank have partnered to improve local communities within the co-op’s service territory. In 2020, New Washington Little League received a $7,025 grant to install LED lighting at the ballfields.
“Our community and members remain a top priority for North Central Electric,” says North Central General Manager Ed VanHoose. “Therefore, we are happy to support our local schools with these funds, increasing the overall security on campus as well as the safety of students and staff."
The CoBank’s Sharing Success matching grant program allows NCE to demonstrate “Concern for Community,” one of its seven cooperative principles. Through the program and this grant, NCE can support those in need and help foster the growth of a happy, healthy, and prosperous community education program.
