Insights > Parent Power
Senior analyst Rock Ingram and his son, Christian, are now enjoying their well-earned summer vacation after a busy school year, where Rock was selected as District Parent of the Year for the Cleveland School district.
“I was chosen out of more than 6,000 parents that make up the school district. My son will be in second grade this upcoming school year. Since he was in kindergarten, I’ve always used my flex day to volunteer in his classroom. Normally, I would assist his peers that needed additional help in an area of deficiency. When I became PSTA President at his school, my theme for the year was ‘Parent Power.’ I believe it to be the power all parents have to make a difference in their child’s education as well as other children with a parenting deficiency. Since Entergy’s motto is ‘We Power Life,’ as an employee I am supplying ‘Parent Power’ at my son’s school to improve the communities we serve through education. Also, I am grateful to Entergy for supporting and powering my efforts through our community connectors program.” ~ Rock Ingram, senior analyst
