Texas New Mexico Power Company (TNMP) recently awarded a grant to the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation, an important nonprofit partner that plays a key role in improving educational opportunities for Lewisville students.

The foundation was awarded $5,000 to help fund grants, scholarships and more in support of Lewisville teachers and students, a mission it's been carrying out since 1990.

"We're very excited to have received this grant," said Connie Pelphrey, the foundation's executive director. "We are putting it to good use, helping to fund initiatives that enable our students and teachers to excel in the classroom." Pelphrey says it will support the "Changing Children's Lives" fund.

While TNMP serves customers in many areas of the state, Lewisville is its largest single community and home to the company's general office.

"We're proud to help support this fine organization," said TNMP President Neal Walker. "It provides tremendous opportunities that make a real difference for students and teachers in this community."

TNMP is a transmission and distribution service provider that delivers power to about 230,000 homes and businesses on behalf of retail electric providers in Texas. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of PNM Resources.
