Cleco goes back to school at Lessie Moore for ‘Together Tuesdays’
Today, Cleco employees and mascot, Hot Spot, opened car doors, greeted students, gave high fives and more at Lessie Moore Elementary School in Pineville in support of Rapides Parish School Board’s initiative “Together Tuesdays.”
The Rapides Parish School Board implemented “Together Tuesdays” in 2019 to offer innovative, inclusive and creative ways for employers and the community to become more involved with their local schools. These celebrations of unity take place the first Tuesday of every month.
“We hope our participation helps the students start their day on a positive note,” said Shane Hilton, president of Cleco Power. “We applaud the superintendent and the Rapides Parish School Board for generating this program which supports our most important asset, our youth.”
“Lessie Moore believes it takes a village to grow our students, and we are so thankful for our community leaders like Cleco for supporting us in this vision,” said Pam Walker, principal of Lessie Moore Elementary School. “We are truly better together with Cleco and our other partners and families!”
Cleco employees are scheduled to visit a different school every month in Rapides parish for the remainder of the 2023 school year.
