BECi Recognizes Outstanding Local Teachers Through Mini-Grant Program

Beauregard Electric Cooperative, Inc. recently recognized outstanding local teachers through its mini-grant program.

BECi is committed to its community through educational opportunities for its students. BECi’s new mini-grant program is one of many programs BECi offers to encourage and facilitate the continued education of local students.

Four $500 grants were given to educators who currently teach at a school within BECi’s service area or whose students live in homes served by BECi. Winning applications were chosen based on creativity, the feasibility of the project and the need and benefit of the students.

Winners of the $500 mini-grants are (clockwise) :

Laura Manuel, Librarian at DeQuincy High School,

Tammy Jeanise, 4th Grade Science Teacher at Kinder Elementary,

Joshua Beard, High School Science Teacher at DeRidder High School,

Jessica Turner, 1st Grade Teacher at Fairview High School.


BECi is a strong supporter of education, proud of its local schools and staff, and believes that these mini-grants will help schools, teachers and students – who are the future of the community.
