The Essex Power Corporation Powering Future Leaders Award supports EPC’s philosophy and track record of supporting our youth, plus directly helps a potential future contributor to our industry…maybe our company!John Avdoulos, President & CEO, Essex Power Corporation
The Powering Future Leaders Award is another way that Essex Power supports the youth in its communities. In previous years, Essex Power has donated $40,000 to each of its shareholder municipalities through its Youth in Community Fund. To date, $320,000 has been donated to the youth in our communities through the fund. Essex Power Corporation looks forward to continuing to support our youth through this new bursary program and helping power our future leaders!
