Southern Company recognized the first graduates of the transmission line and substation construction apprentice training program the company helped establish at Fort Stewart near Savannah, Ga.
This program is one example of outreach by the energy industry to veterans of the military. Careers related to energy are among the best jobs for veterans.
As a longtime supporter of the military, Southern Company is proud to enhance our recruitment efforts through this innovative partnership with the U.S. Army," said Southern Company Chief Operating Officer Kimberly S. Greene. "By bringing this specialized training to Fort Stewart, we are helping veterans successfully transition to civilian life while putting their unique skills to work for the benefit of the customers we serve."
