BCSC and Duke Energy partnerships nears $100k donation mark

BCSC Superintendent Dr. Jim Roberts accepts a check from Duke Energy’s Chip Orben at Monday night’s school board meeting at Northside Middle School.

Duke Energy is making a $7,500 donation to Bartholomew Consolidated Schools to improve science, technology, engineering and math learning in the school district.

Chip Orben with Duke presented an over-sized check to the school district at last night’s school board meeting.

Orben says that this makes just under $100,000 thousand dollars in STEM donations from the energy company’s foundation to BCSC since 2015.
