Atmos Energy Partners with Junior Achievement of Dallas

December 4, 2017

Any age is a good age to learn about the safety and benefits of natural gas. Through a partnership with the Junior Achievement of Dallas, Atmos Energy employees are helping to educate sixth-grade students about natural gas and important life skills.

Several employees participated in the grand opening of JA BizTown, a simulated city experience that is located within the Gilbreath Reed Career and Tech Center in Garland, TX. This program allows students to connect the dots between classroom learning and life outside of school. Atmos Energy’s role at JA BizTown is to teach students about the role of natural gas in everyday life, careers in the industry and most importantly, understanding how to be safe around natural gas.

In addition to the employees in attendance, Gus the Gopher made an appearance to promote safe digging in communities. Calling 811 in advance of any excavation ensures that underground utility-owned lines are marked with flags to minimize the chance of damage to a natural gas line.
