Principal attributes portion of school’s “A” rating to the company’s support
This year’s Fried Chicken Festival brought together thousands of people around a shared love of great food, music and culture – and amongst many of those festivalgoers were public school educators. As part of Entergy’s ongoing commitment to investing in our communities, we hosted the first-ever complimentary Teacher’s Lounge – an exclusive area at the festival for teachers and staff to enjoy VIP seating, live music, food and drinks.
In the first half of 2023 alone, Entergy Mississippi has provided more than $600,000 in shareholder contributions to organizations across its service area.
Entergy Mississippi is recognized as a eader for initiatives that help families and communities.
Years before Entergy’s low-income focus became a corporate priority, company leaders and employees in Mississippi had established a legacy of community service and customer support.
Economic development in Mississippi began to increase during the mid-20th century, as decades of efforts like Mississippi Power & Light’s “Helping Build Mississippi” program led to new investment in the state.
Entergy employees and members of Quad Area Community Action Agency have teamed up again this summer to help make residential homes more energy efficient by installing new light bulbs and replacing weather stripping on doors, among other steps.
By mid-2020, Entergy had dedicated almost $3 million to COVID-19 relief efforts in its four-state service area and The Power to Care, which helps low-income customers pay utility bills.
Entergy has played a key role in economic development in Mississippi for decades.
