Plant Hatch Adopts Toombs Central
Wednesday, 28 August 2013

August 28-- The Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Plant has adopted Altamaha Elementary and Toombs Central Elementary School, both located inside the plant’s ten mile emergency planning zone, as they focus community support efforts on education.

"Education is vital to our communities," said Site Vice President Dennis Madison. "Hatch employees are working together to meet some of the student, educator and school needs in the surrounding area."

Plant Hatch held a "Back to School Supply Drive" to support students and teachers as they return to school. Employees donated items such as notebook paper, pencils, notebooks, crayons and glue to give to the schools to share with teachers and students.

“During a time of significant budget cuts, our faculty and staff appreciate the partnership we have formed with Plant Hatch to provide resources that will enhance the quality of education for our students," said TCES Principal Tonawanda Irie.

Additionally, Plant Hatch sponsored a faculty meal at each school during their pre-planning period. AES faculty and staff were servedlunch on open house day and TCES faculty and staff enjoyed a pre-planning breakfast on their first day back to school.

“We look forward to continuing support throughout the school year,” said Madison. “We wish all of the students and teachers the best as they begin the new school year and hope they reach great new heights this year.”
