Putting our energy into our community
Sequent Energy Management and its parent company, Southern Company, fully support and encourage both individual and corporate efforts to give back to the communities where we live and serve. We show our dedication and corporate citizenship through grants, community outreach programs and other corporate charitable giving programs.
Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston
Sequent Energy Management is proud to partner with Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston through its corporate work-study program, which provides an opportunity for students to receive a university-preparatory education while getting real-world work experience. Cristo Rey Jesuit (CRJ) students spend one to two days each week at Sequent and the salaries they earn pay for a portion of their school tuition. The program, which Sequent has supported since 2012, has been widely popular with students and employees and continues to be a foundation of our community involvement.
Student of the Month – December 2017
Cristo Rey Jesuit’s Student of the Month program rewards a student worker who has demonstrated exceptional performance both at school and at work. Edgar Crispin, a student in Sequent’s corporate work-study program, was given this prestigious award for the month of December 2017. Along with his academic performance, Edgar was nominated and awarded based on his success at Sequent and the testimonials of a Sequent employee. Great job, Edgar!
End of semester presentations – December 2017
As the end of another work-study semester comes to a close, corporate work-study program participants were given the opportunity to provide a year-end update to Sequent employees. These presentations allowed students to utilize PowerPoint and communication skills to showcase what they learned while working at Sequent. We are proud to support the achievement and goals of these bright students!
Graduation – May 2017
To provide additional support to the 2017 Cristo Rey Jesuit graduating class, Sequent employee volunteers worked behind the scenes to iron and steam graduation robes and insert diplomas into covers for the 131 graduating seniors who had all been accepted to college. In all, the students received more than $10 million in scholarships. On graduation day, the reward of serving and being a part of the life-changing experiences of Cristo Rey students was elevated when one of Sequent’s work-study interns and 2017 graduates, Karen Rodriguez, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Excellence for Vision and Leadership. Congratulations Karen and the class of 2017 graduates.
Boys & Girls Harbor “Adopt a Cottage”
At Sequent Energy Management, the holidays are a time to support those who need it most. The company recently collected gifts for its annual Boys & Girls Harbor "Adopt a Cottage".
In an interesting twist this year, all wish lists have been for girls of various ages. Thanks to the donations from Sequent employees, gifts of baby dolls, Barbies, Easy Bake ovens and nail polish kits are ready to be delivered this holiday season.
"I am always amazed at the generosity of our employees – it seems their already big hearts get even bigger during the holidays," said Marshall Lang, president, Sequent Energy Management. "Adopting a family and buying gifts for those who otherwise might not receive anything is just one way we demonstrate and live out our Values here at Sequent."
