The future of education is looking brighter in St. Landry Parish.

Today, Cleco Power Wise, the utility’s energy efficiency program, presented a check to the St. Landry Parish School Board for $63,587.60.

The money is for energy-saving upgrades at six schools.

“Teachers and students have reached out to us just to express their excitement and gratitude for the improvement in our facilities. And, we’re, again, just so thankful to our board for allowing this and to Cleco for partnering with us,” said St. Landry Parish Schools Director of Operations Claudia Blanchard.
