Museums, theater, music and other artistic endeavors are vital for communities to leave a cultural legacy for future generations. And, the FirstEnergy Foundation continues to support these efforts in the communities we serve.

Laura Tubo, consultant, Regional External Affairs, Ohio Edison, presents a $5,000 FirstEnergy Foundation Grant to Robb Hankins, executive director, Arts in Stark. The grant benefits the organization’s SmArts Program, which uses art to supercharge learning in math and science and helps students understand how cultural diversity can lead to genius-like thinking.
