Cleco employees help make day extra special at Pineville High School
Today, Cleco employees and mascot, Hot Spot, opened car doors, greeted students, and gave high fives and hugs at Pineville High School in Pineville, La. in support of “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 on the first Tuesday of every month.
“This is a great opportunity to support teachers, staff and administrators in their efforts to motivate students and help them succeed,” said Shane Hilton, president of Cleco Power. “Together Tuesday gives us the opportunity to make the school day a little brighter for students and motivate them to learn.”
“Having members of a local business and their mascot on campus is so important for our students,” said Allison Byrnes, vice principal of Pineville High School. “It lets them know that the community supports them and wants the best for them.”
Cleco employees are scheduled to visit several different schools every month in Rapides Parish for the 2023 – 2024 school year.
