Entergy contributes to Southeastern Foundation
Entergy has donated funding to the Southeastern Louisiana University Foundation as support for multiple initiatives in the coming year. Included is support for two longstanding STEM Education Outreach initiatives of the University, the Region VIII Science Fair and State Science Olympiad. Also included is a sponsorship of children’s performances of the Columbia Theatre for Performing Arts, as well as support for University students and academics by providing a sponsorship of the Southeastern Foundation’s signature fundraising event, Chefs Evening.

Southeastern’s Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations, Lynn Horgan, states, “Entergy’s comprehensive support of Southeastern initiatives makes them a true partner in advancing Southeastern’s mission to lead the educational, economic and cultural development of the region. “

Entergy has a long standing relationship with Southeastern. “Southeastern has a direct impact in the region by providing the kind of hands-on educational and cultural opportunities that will have both an immediate and long-term effect for families and our community,” said Entergy Northshore Customer Service Representative, Eunice Harris. “Where there is an advanced educational system, businesses will expand or relocate into those areas. And Entergy is proud to be a part of those expansions/relocations.”
