Mon Power Making a Difference

July 3, 2019

Mon Power employees and our FirstEnergy Foundation are making a difference in our West Virginia service area.

FirstEnergy was named Clarksburg, West Virginia’s Business of the Year at the Clarksburg Uptown annual meeting for our continued community involvement and support for local projects. Tim Pingley, Regional External Affairs consultant, accepted the award.

Mario Sotomayor, building mechanic A, Spencer Service Center, presents a $5,000 FirstEnergy Foundation grant check to Jeff Tanner of PATCH (Planned Approach to Community Health). The organization plans to use the funds to create a lab where students learn the technical and business roles electricity plays in business and agriculture. PATCH administers several different grants that focus on character education; tobacco, drug and alcohol prevention; civic duty and service learning; and other topics. The program currently serves 2,000 students in Roane, Jackson and Mason counties, and operates three preschools in Roane and Jackson counties in West Virginia.
