Atmos Energy Donates Scholarships to Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

In 1957, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a speech in Montgomery, Alabama, in which he declared, "Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" This kind of service mentality is the inspiration in which Atmos Energy employees treat customers, peers and coworkers. 

Giving back to the community is both important and special to employees throughout our divisions. Earlier this year, our Mid-Tex division had the opportunity to provide scholarships to students from Arlington, Texas at the city’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. Scholarships were given to students selected as winners in both essay and art competitions.  

The theme for this year’s event, “Change Begins with Me” was especially poignant, as Martin Luther King III gave the keynote address at the awards banquet. 

“It was an amazing evening to have the opportunity to give out the scholarships and hear Martin Luther King III speak,” said Manager of Public Affairs Kelly Pacleb.
