LCA was recently awarded $529 through a Walton EMC School Empowerment Grant. The grant funds come from unclaimed capital credits. Customer-owners who move off Walton EMC’s grid may be due capital credit refunds. In some instances, those checks are returned by the post office because of an incorrect address. After Walton EMC exhausts all efforts to find the rightful owners, Georgia law allows the money to be used for community development projects.
The funding will be used to purchase an outdoor chess set. Studies confirm that chess improves a multitude of areas such as academics performance, concentration, logical thinking, problem-solving and social skills.
