Title: Special Recognition of GRU Camp EmPower Students (NB)


Special Recognition of GRU Camp EmPower Students (NB)



As part of its succession planning to address an aging workforce, GRU staff developed Camp EmPower, a spring break camp designed to expose middle school-aged students to careers in the utility industry. From March 26th, 2018, through March 30th, 2018, GRU held its 6th annual camp.  Students from local schools spent their spring break with GRU staff, learning about a different area of the utility each day. The students were given hands-on experience with different jobs and participated in mock job interviews at the end of the week followed by graduation.  



The City Commission hear presentations by staff and Camp EmPower students.
