DAYTON, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As part of the Youth Energy Celebration, hosted by Ohio Energy Project
(OEP), Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio
(Vectren), a CenterPoint Energy Company, awarded Energy Leadership
Scholarships to three high school seniors planning for careers in energy.

The recognition event was held at The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, where
three local area students were presented the 2019 DP&L and Vectren
Leadership Scholarship. Chloe Spencer of West Liberty-Salem High School,
Erin Tebbe of Twin Valley High School and Alexander House of Oakwood
High School will each receive $1,000 towards their college expenses.

Chloe Spencer plans to attend the University of Toledo majoring in
chemical engineering. Erin Tebbe is heading to Purdue University to
study engineering. Alexander House will major in aerospace engineering
at the University of Cincinnati.

Each year, DP&L teams up with Vectren to host the OEP Energy Fair
teaching young people about energy efficiency through hands-on sessions
that allow high school students to mentor their younger counterparts.
These companies generously provide funding for the curriculum, training
and materials that promote energy literacy and leadership for students
and their families each year.

DP&L was also recognized by OEP for its long-standing partnership and
contributions to the program. The award celebrates a 30-year milestone
of continued support and participation in the program.

In addition, DP&L has sponsored the Be E3 Smart energy
efficiency program since 2009. As a result, more than 50,000 energy
efficiency kits have been sent home through the classroom. DP&L is
supporting the AEGIS Energy Bike building program for the fifth year.

Two area teachers were honored with the Excellence in Energy Efficiency
award. Jovita Wade, an intervention specialist at Fairborn High School,
received the DP&L Teacher Award and Heidi Edwards, a science educator
from Oakwood High School in Dayton, received the Vectren Teacher Award.
Both award recipients have participated in OEP programs for several
years, tailoring their curriculums to foster the next generation of
energy leaders and conservation thinkers.
