July 10, 2023 - Sargent & Lundy recently supported the American Electric Power Foundation by sponsoring the Simon Kenton Council Eagle Scouts’ annual recognition dinner in Columbus, Ohio. Hosted by the Boy Scouts of America, the event honored 277 members of the 2022 Simon Kenton Council Eagle Scout class. Sargent & Lundy’s donation enforces its commitment to making positive impact in the communities where it has a presence.
Employees from Sargent & Lundy, some of whom are former Eagle Scouts, attended the event and connected with representatives from other local and national businesses. They shared stories of how their experience as Eagle Scouts has shaped their lives, both personally and professionally, with the leadership and community-building skills they learned from participating in the organization.
