Dakota Electric Association recently donated $10,000 to support college and career pathways programming in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. The donation will help the district continue its work to provide classes and other opportunities that help students find their passions and prepare for success after graduation.
“I would like to thank you on behalf of the school district for your gracious contributions to education,” said Dr. Kathy Funston, director of strategic partnerships and pathways for District 191.
The donation was part of a series of gifts from Dakota Electric to south metro school districts.
“We are happy to be able to provide financial support from unclaimed capital credits to worthwhile educational programs,” Board Chair Jim Sheldon said.
