WAKE FOREST — Wake Electric recently awarded 40 $25 Visa gift cards to area students who received at least one “A” (or its equivalent) on their report cards through the co-op’s “Give Us an A” program. This program encourages academic achievement and Wake Electric encourages the winners to purchase a savings bond through treasurydirect.gov with their Visa gift card money. These awards are part of a drawing held three times a year.
Students in any grade in Durham, Franklin, Granville, Johnston, Nash, Vance and Wake counties are eligible to apply.
Funding for the “Give Us an A” program is made possible by Wake Electric members through the Operation RoundUp program. Members who sign up to participate in the Operation RoundUp program elect to have their monthly electric bill rounded up to the next whole dollar. These pennies collectively add up to major dollars for community programs.
The most recent “Give Us an A” winners include:
•Matthew Hoffman of Cedar Creek Elementary;
•Joshua Blalock, Savannah Blalock, Jessica Graham, John Kessler, Emily Rafferty, Nicole Rafferty and Alyssa Roland of Franklin Academy;
•Drew Hill, Jessica Honhart, Christopher Mills and Joshua Mills of Franklinton High;
