SVEC supports first pre-apprenticeship program in Tennessee

Powering local communities means more than just providing electricity. As a local electric cooperative, investing in local schools, industries and people is part of Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative's mission.
Along with the Southeast Industrial Development Association (SEIDA), SVEC recently had the opportunity to invest in local youth by donating $10,000 to build an on-site training facility at Valmont Industries in Kimball, TN for students of Marion County schools. Students learn the valuable trade of welding, earn dual-enrollment credits and get paid for their work, while Valmont is proactively meeting the demands of a much-needed skilled workforce. This is the first pre-apprenticeship program in Tennessee and SVEC is proud to help sponsor it.
