(February 25, 2018—BALTIMORE, Md.) What’s the best way to guide Baltimore’s youth to a bright future? For Maryland Chamber member Constellation, an Exelon company, it’s with time and attention.
The leading competitive energy company is already committed to student success through its mentorship program at Living Classroom Foundation’s Crossroads School—a year-round program in which Constellation employees teach and guide middle school students at the charter school in East Baltimore. But it decided to take its service even further.
This fall, more than 70 Constellation employees teamed up to renovate the school’s campus. The makeover included new gardens, creative murals, new activities rooms and more. The day of renovations and activities marked one of many in Constellation’s more than decade-long relationship with Crossroads.
“Seeing the students walk in and react to the artwork for the first time was pretty incredible,” said Carrie Stockwell, Constellation’s senior manager of corporate relations. “We’re thrilled that these renovations have contributed to their overall academic experience.”
Stockwell said Constellation understands the importance of equipping Maryland’s youth with the knowledge for a promising future. The company also knows it is critical to nurture creativity and spark curiosity. Its commitment is not limited to knowledge-based education. It extends to surrounding students with an environment conducive to imagination, innovation and learning.
“At Constellation, we firmly believe that to truly consider yourself a good business, you must invest back into the communities in which you live and work,” Stockwell said. “Our relationship with Living Classrooms and the Crossroads School is a prime example of that commitment.”
