Walton EMC School EmPOWERment Grants

As part of the School EmPOWERment Grants program, Walton EMC recently presented $368,212 to 63 schools in their 10-county service area. All 15 WCSD schools received a total of $100,963 in grant funds to support academics, arts and athletics across the district.
"Each year, Walton EMC's generosity continues to make significant, lasting impacts on our students and teachers," said Superintendent Nathan Franklin. "I appreciate Walton EMC’s continued contributions and congratulate this year's recipients."
Walton EMC’s grant funds come from unclaimed capital credits. Customer-owners who move off Walton EMC’s grid may be due capital credit refunds. In some instances, those checks are returned, and after Walton EMC exhausts all efforts to find the rightful owners, Georgia law allows the money to be used for community development projects.
