Alabama Power Foundation announces Students to Stewards grant recipients

Program supports conservation education across Alabama

Four schools and nonprofit organizations will receive conservation education grants through the Alabama Power Foundation’s Students to Stewards program.

Students to Stewards curriculum grants provide up to $1,000 each for classroom lessons, in-the-field learning and teacher training.

“Students have an opportunity to learn firsthand about Alabama’s natural resources and preservation of those resources,” said Susan Comensky, foundation board member and Alabama Power vice president of Environmental Affairs. “We believe this program is an investment in our future and will yield a great return for our students and our state.”

The recipients of the 2017 Students to Stewards curriculum grants are:

  • Auburn High School
  • Beulah Elementary School –  Valley
  • Cary Woods Elementary School – Auburn
  • Friends of the Montgomery Clean City Commission.

Students to Stewards is part of the Alabama Power Foundation’s Brighter Minds education initiative, which helps prepare students for the workforce. For more information about Students to Stewards, Brighter Minds and other Alabama Power Foundation and Alabama Power community programs, visit
