Darla Moore School of Business, Dominion Energy launch pipeline program for students

Dominion Energy alongside representatives from Richland One and Richland Two school districts announced Monday they are now working with the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business to develop a high school pipeline program. The Dominion Energy Power Forward Program will provide unique opportunities for students to enhance knowledge of and interest in business degrees and professions.

The program provides activities and resources to Richland County students as early as their freshman year. Resources can include lunch-and-learns, mentorships from Moore School faculty and staff, site visits to the building and other locations and academic competitions.

“What we’re doing here is making sure that we can align with two of our premier school districts in the state to make sure the Moore School is available to them,” Moore School Dean Peter Brews said. “We need to build the best opportunities for individuals in South Carolina — that’s one of our focuses at the Moore School. We appreciate the support in helping us create the next generation of business leaders.”
