Beverely Elliott, recently had the honor of presenting TEP with the prestigious Buffalo Soldier Statuette, a locally designed work of art by R. Quinro Davis. These statuettes are awarded to those who contribute $100,000 or more to the museum, highlighting TEP’s significant commitment to the cause. What’s even more commendable is that TEP didn’t stop at just a financial contribution. They went the extra mile by partnering with the University of Arizona’s Eller College and offering a paid internship opportunity at the African American Museum of Southern Arizona to an Eller College student.
This internship opportunity is a testament to TEP’s dedication to education and the development of local talent. Dean Karthik Kannan, Colleen Perra of the Eller College, and Wendy Erica Werthen of TEP had an opportunity to meet AAMSAZ’s selection of Michael Frees, a senior student who has already proven himself to be a valuable asset to the museum. TEP’s support and partnership with the museum will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on both the community and the future generations of students involved with AAMSAZ. It’s heartwarming to see such collaboration and commitment to preserving andcelebrating the rich cultural heritage of the African American community in Southern Arizona. Thank you, Tucson Electric Power, for your ongoing support and dedication to the community and education.
