Duke Energy gives to Educational Program

Posted: Friday, August 17, 2018

The Honeywell Foundation Educational Outreach Program (EOP), now beginning its 21st year, provides arts-in-education opportunities to students in pre-school through twelfth grade. During the 2017-18 school year, the program served 14 counties in Northeast Indiana with more than 48,000 student interactions.

Since 2002, Duke Energy has been an outstanding partner for the program. Duke Energy funding helps bring EOP to Cass, Fulton, Grant, Howard, Huntington, Kosciusko, Miami, Wabash and Whitley county school systems.

“There are a lot of budget demands on schools today, and the Honeywell Center program brings arts experiences to education that might not otherwise happen,” Kevin Johnston, government and community relations manager, Duke Energy, said. “We are glad to help make that happen.”

Duke Energy Indiana’s operations provide about 6,800 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 820,000 customers in a 23,000-square-mile service area, making it the state’s largest electric supplier. The Duke Energy Foundation provides philanthropic support to address the needs of the communities where its customers live and work. The foundation provided approximately $2 million in charitable gifts to Indiana organizations in 2017.
