Blue Ridge Electric is proud of our school / business partnerships with Collettsville Elementary, William Lenoir Middle School and Horizons Elementary School. Each year, Blue Ridge Electric and the principals of these schools plan a course of action that creates a bond between the students and teachers and Blue Ridge Electric. We believe this relationship helps in a variety of ways including attendance, reading and even behavior. Additionally, we strive to demonstrate the importance of being involved in the community.
Whether it is an ice cream party for perfect attendance or a bushel of apples for the teachers, we want to show the students, teachers and the entire school that we care about their success and their future.
Our school business partnership is a two-way street. Employees of Blue Ridge Electric and Blue Ridge Energies enjoy cards and letters from students and even performances from chorus groups, both of which helps students develop social and communications skills.

Blue Ridge Electric is currently working with school systems in Watauga, Ashe and Alleghany counties to develop school/ business partnerships throughout our entire service area.
