Arts and Community
From the eastern portion of our service territory to the west and points in between, AEP employees participate in a variety of events to make lives and communities better.
- AEP Texas employees marched in the annual Harbor Lights holiday parade in Corpus Christi, Texas.
- Indiana Michigan Power mascot Louie the Lightning Bug ran in mascot dash as part of Girls on the Run in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The event promotes physical-activity-based positive youth development for girls in 3rd-8th grades.
- Appalachian Power hosted its annual Appalachian Power Festival Run, the premiere running event in western Virginia.
The AEP Foundation awards grants to support artistic and cultural experiences in communities. The San Benito (Texas) Cultural Heritage Museum will be a more sustainable attraction for culture, education, entertainment and economic development to enhance the quality of life for residents. Providing funds to modernize the Grand Upton Hall at Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor will help drive economic development by attracting meetings and activities to one of the single-largest indoor event spaces in southwest Michigan.
