Georgia Power and the Atlanta Braves entered year three of celebrating Nuestra Cultura during Hispanic Heritage Month. The program is a community initiative created to educate, engage and celebrate the many contributions Hispanics and Latinos have made to the game of baseball through community service initiatives and presented in coordination with Georgia Power's longstanding Learning Power in-school curriculum. Through the month-long program, local elementary school students had the opportunity to meet and participate in a skills clinic and Q&A with Braves players, coaches and staff.
Nuestra Cultura is just one of the ways Georgia Power is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Additional events and initiatives hosted this month include Plaza Fiesta's Independencia de Mexico (a family friendly celebration that hosts vendors, food tents, music, dancing and performances) and Los Bravos Day at SunTrust Park (a special on-field presentation saluting the Hispanic heritage of many current and former Braves players).
Georgia Power's Learning Power education program is rooted in the company's longstanding commitment to improving education in Georgia. Since the program's inception in 2011, the company has impacted more than 650,000 students.
