MLGW News Release
MLGW Announces 5th Annual MLGW Goes to School Program for Local Students
March 28, 2011
(March 28, 2011) - About 32 MLGW employees are visiting Memphis City School locations this week during its 5th annual "MLGW Goes to School" program.

MLGW Goes to School is a program developed to encourage Memphis City Schools' students to explore career opportunities in the utility/energy industry, specifically Memphis' publicly-owned utility. Employee volunteers will share their educational background, career choices, and job responsibilities and duties. This year, the focus will be on the students enrolled in MCS career and technology centers. Participating schools include:

  • Carver High School, MLGW's Adopt-A-School
  • City University for Boys, Special Request
  • East Career & Technology Center
  • Kansas Career & Technology Center
  • Kingsbury Career & Technology Center
  • Messick Adult High School
  • Sheffield Career & Technology Center
  • Southwest Career and Technology Center
  • Trezevant Career and Technology Center

    MLGW participates annually in the educational process of students in Memphis City Schools, with particular emphasis on the needs, support and training of those students. MLGW supports such activities as the summer intern/cooperative education programs, Memphis Weekend Academy, Junior Achievement and Explorer Posts, and sponsors many programs at its adopted school, Carver High School. Now in its fifth year, MLGW Goes to school provides students with information about careers in utility positions such as engineers, electronics technicians, linemen, accountants, drafters, customer service representatives and more.

    This multi-year program will serve a dual purpose of not only making students aware of opportunities in the utility industry, but also providing our utility with a ready local resource for future talented and qualified employees.
