    Miami Valley Seniors Awarded Energy Leadership Scholarships at the Ohio Youth Energy Celebration

    Miami Valley Seniors Awarded Energy Leadership Scholarships at the Ohio Youth Energy Celebration

    DAYTON, Ohio - May 16, 2017 - As part of the Youth Energy Celebration hosted by the Ohio Energy Project (OEP), Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio (Vectren) presented Energy Leadership Scholarships to three high school seniors heading for careers related to energy.

    Held in Columbus today at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), three area students were presented with DP&L and Vectren Energy Leadership Scholarships. Mark Lauterbach of Oakwood High School; Thomas Muhlecke of Ponitz Career Technology Center; and Katherine Hemm of Lehman Catholic High School will each receive $1,000 toward college expenses.

    Lauterbach plans to attend University of Dayton to study mechanical and aerospace engineering. Muhlecke will attend University of Nebraska - Lincoln and major in electrical engineering. Hemm will major in business at Miami University of Ohio.

    The scholarships are a part of DP&L and Vectren's School Energy Education Program facilitated by OEP throughout the year.  Each year, DP&L teams with Vectren to hold an Energy Fair teaching young people about energy efficiency through hands-on sessions that allow high school students to mentor their younger counterparts.

    In addition, DP&L and Vectren have sponsored the Be E3 Smart energy efficiency program since 2009. As a result, more than 60,000 energy efficiency kits have been sent home through the classroom. This June DP&L is supporting the Activating and Energizing Girls In Science energy bike building program for the third year.

    Two area teachers were also honored for their participation in energy education. Scott Spohler from Madison Plains High School in London received the DP&L Teacher Award and Amanda Runk from Washington Court House Middle School was the recipient of the Vectren Teacher Award. Both have participated in DP&L and Vectren's energy education programs.
