Thanks to a Scecina graduate who works for IPL, Scecina Memorial High School has received a $5,000 Power Grant from the Indianapolis utility company for our cafeteria.

Patrick Cannaday ’84, who worked in the cafeteria as a Scecina student, and his sister Maureen Rowe, a Scecina staff member, wrote the grant request for cafeteria equipment.

“IPL has been really good about giving back to nonprofits that need to make repairs,” said Cannaday, a 26-year IPL employee.
“I had heard about the grant the last couple of years and wanted to help out one of the schools that I went to or one of my kids went to, but in the end I chose the right one, MY School: Scecina.”

Scecina was among 23 nonprofit organizations to receive one of IPL’s latest round of grants, which totaled $75,000. Employees nominate organizations and a selection committee made up of employees makes the final decisions. IPL has given a total of $300,000 back to the community through its Power Grant program.

IPL awards Power Grants in five categories: arts and culture; community enhancement; economic development; education; and environment.

IPL provides retail electric service to more than 470,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in Indianapolis and other Central Indiana communities.
