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 meet this need Central Electric Power Cooperative, working in conjunction with the University of Missouri, wrote the curriculum for Energy in Today’s Classroom and began offering the course annually in 2013.

This 2 day course will be held August 2nd and 3rd, 2022 at the University of Missouri – Columbia campus.  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.

Upon completion of the class, the teachers will earn 1 graduate credit.  This is a FREE graduate credit hour.  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 tuition, meals, instructional material, and lodging if needed.  An additional graduate hour, not awarded by the scholarship, can be earned upon completion of additional course requirements.

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.
