NextEra Energy donates $10,000 to school district

NextEra Energy Resources representative Ashley Hudgens presented Palo Verde Unified School District Board President Dr. Norman Guith with a $10,000 check to purchase new computers for Felix J. Appleby Elementary School, where most of the classrooms have severely outdated devices. NextEra Energy Resources is building and owns the Genesis Solar Energy Project, 20 miles west of Blythe, and is also the majority owner of Desert Sunlight Solar Farm being constructed near Desert Center. These projects represent over a thousand construction jobs to date and billions of dollars in investment in the county, according to NextEra.

I must say your timing is excellent, since right after the election when Romney and Ryan take over and appoint Sarah Palan as the new Sec. of Interior, this $90 billion green energy boondoggle will be placed on the ash hemp of history.

Let's face it. With all the budget cuts going on, ANY assistance from outside entities should be greatly appreciated, especially by parents. If some in the Govt have their way, even more "sanctions" will be leveled on the Education Budget at the Federal level. Overpopulation and Under-education are two huge problems, but unless you're a strict Catholic or a Mainland Chinese the former is not in your control. But the "Dumbing down of America" is not only something that CAN be fixed, but BETTER be. And Damn soon.!

Not bad. Million or billion dollar company donates $10,000 to our schools but local donors raise $500,000 which none go to local schools? I wish I could afford to spend $600 a month for my child to go to a private school on top of that. LOL!
