ComEd Volunteers Help Beautify Partner School



On August 8, fifteen enthusiastic members of ComEd’s awesome Strategy and Technology team, directed by Merit Trustee Jennifer Montague, volunteered their time and muscle to organize the music room at Pilsen’s Whittier Elementary Dual Language School and put a fresh coat of paint on the cafeteria walls. Whittier is a long-standing member of our Merit Music in Communities programs, in which Merit faculty provide off-site instruction to students in Chicago-area schools and community centers. Jennifer and her team were warmly greeted by Assistant Principal Cristina Lopez and her staff with fresh coffee and straight-from-the-oven churros from a local bakery to get their day off to a great start.

Thank you Team Jennifer, ComEd, Cristina, and Whittier for your support of Merit and music education.
