PUF and AABE
Steve Mitnick is President of Lines Up, Inc. and Executive Editor of Public Utilities Fortnightly. He is the author of “Women Leading Utilities, the Pioneers and Path to Today and Tomorrow ” and “Lewis Latimer, the First Hidden Figure,” and the co-author of “Front Lines to Power Lines.”
Six high school seniors with the brightest of futures won this year's PUF Latimer Scholarships Awards. These talented young women and men were selected this year, and others last year, in concert with the American Association of Blacks in Energy.
The scholarships were made possible by the supporters of our 2020 book, "Lewis Latimer, the First Hidden Figure," Xcel Energy, CPS Energy, FirstEnergy, Guidehouse, Energy Impact Partners, and Dentons.
The Public Utilities Fortnightly team interviewed three of this year's PUF Latimer Scholars to hear about how they made it to this point and how they view their futures. Listen in and be inspired as we were.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: American Association of Blacks in Energy has different regions. Which part of the country are you from?
Victoria Grimes: I'm from Georgia, the good old South. I'm graduating from Calvary Day School in Savannah, Georgia, the historic town. I have to give the speech as I'm the valedictorian of the class.
