Metro school students celebrated Earth Day by planting donated trees from Nashville Electric Service (NES) on their school campuses Wednesday.

Nineteen trees including dogwoods, redbud, cherry and magnolias are now taking root at Glenn Enhanced Option Elementary and Maplewood High School. The trees were made available through the NES Tree Replacement program.

NES is a proud supporter of both Glenn Enhanced Option Elementary and Maplewood’s Academy of Energy & Power.

Glenn Enhanced is NES’ Pencil Partner school. Employees regularly volunteer their time reading to students. In addition, employees collect school supplies and food items for students and their families each year.

NES partners with the Academy of Energy & Power to develop curriculum and annual class projects for students interested in engineering.
