Alabama Power Foundation awards Students to Stewards grants

Six Alabama public schools have received conservation education grants through the Alabama Power Foundation’s “Students to Stewards” initiative.

Students to Stewards grants promote environmental stewardship, sustainability and education. The grants can be used for a variety of environmental education-related projects, including in-school and field learning, outdoor classrooms and teacher training.

“Students to Stewards grants help open minds to the extraordinary natural resources in our state and how to protect them,” said Tequila Smith, Alabama Power Foundation president. “We also hope these grants will motivate young people in Alabama to consider careers inspired by science, the environment and the natural world – careers that can help elevate our state.”

Here are the latest recipients of Students to Steward grants:

  • Alma Bryant High School – Irvington.
  • Attalla Elementary School.
  • Chickasaw High School.
  • Jemison Intermediate School.
  • Lynn Elementary School.
  • Stemley Road Elementary School – Talladega.

Since 2014, Students to Stewards has awarded more than 50 grants totaling more than $100,000 to support education in Alabama. For more information about Students to Stewards and the Alabama Power Foundation, including community and volunteer initiatives, visit
