It is an absolute fact that JA of Lincoln could not do what we do without our corporate partners. Obviously, their financial generosity is always hugely appreciated, but what many of them do goes far beyond dollars and cents. They recruit volunteers and provide the valuable time needed in classrooms. This helps provide Lincoln’s students with real-world mentors. More than anything, they show our kids that the adults in their community really care about their education.
Black Hills Energy is a long-time supporter, and they recently reminded us one more time why we’re so grateful to have them on board. All year long, the company partners with Saratoga Elementary to put JA volunteers in the school’s classrooms. To take the partnership one step further, Black Hills also puts on a picnic to help end the school year on a high note. This year, students and teachers walked to Van Dorn Park, where BHE employees grilled hot dogs and provided chips, drinks, and ice cream.
Our thanks go out to Black Hills Energy, and to all of JA of Lincoln’s generous corporate partners!
