Schools & Education
South Memorial Elementary School, Peabody.
PMLP & the Youth Community
Peabody Municipal Light Plant is involved in the community. We believe it's better if we begin that outreach and education when citizens are young.
We are proud of the PMLP Annual Science Fair with the City of Peabody Public Schools (4th Grade). 2019 marks the 35th consecutive year for the Science Fair. We also attend Science Nights at elementary schools where we discuss electrical safety and conservation with students.
We participate in Student Government Day at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School. Two students are elected by their peers to be Manager of PMLP for the day and Chair of the Peabody Municipal Lighting Commission for the day. These students also have the opportunity to work at PMLP during that summer.
PMLP is a regular exhibitor at GreenFest where we share conservation tips and fun energy-saving gifts.
Annually at the Peabody International Festival Kids Day, PMLP promotes safety around electricity to kids, and hands out fun items and educational information.
Career Day at the Peabody Veterans Memorial High School give us a chance to showcase the variety of jobs at PMLP and give students insight into good local jobs in the fields of electric distribution, engineering, business and information technologies.
Our Human Resources and Community Relations Director is also an active member in the Kiwanis Club of Peabody whose mission is young children from birth through college. The club partners with many community groups to keep kids safe, assist in leadership opportunities and advance literacy.
