Bevill State Community College has been awarded five Alabama Power Good Roots grants.

The Jasper, Sumiton, Hamilton and Fayette campuses, as well as Bevill State's Pickens County Educational Center, all received grants, for a total of $4,900 in funding.

The grants will reportedly be used for general landscaping projects.   

"Bevill State Community College has been fortunate to have a longstanding relationship with Alabama Power," Bevill State President Dr. Kim Ennis said. "From program partnerships to grant funding for facilities projects, and the Good Roots grants to beautify our campuses, Alabama Power continues to demonstrate their belief in the mission of the college through support. We appreciate the opportunity to work with such a great organization." 

Bevill State has been awarded Good Roots grants in the past.

The Alabama Power Foundation's Good Roots grants are awarded in partnership with the Alabama Forestry Commission and the Alabama Urban Forestry Association. Grants are awarded up to $1,000 to cities, counties, schools, towns and nonprofit organizations around the state to plant trees.
