The Southeastern Association of Area Agencies on Aging recently honored Kentucky Power Company with the 2015 Corporate Partnership Award.

The award recognizes outstanding contributions of organizations that have enhanced the quality of life of older persons in the Southeast region. Greg Pauley, Kentucky Power president and chief operating officer, accepted the award during the organization’s annual meeting in Savannah, Ga.

Kentucky Power was selected for its work with the Kentucky River Area Development District (KRADD) and its annual Senior Day Games.The company has served as the primary corporate sponsor of the event since it began in 2002. Over the years, Kentucky Power and its employees have not only donated money to the event, but also countless volunteer hours.

“Senior Day is great opportunity for us to support the community and the growing senior population we serve,” said Greg Pauley. “It is inspiring to see these athletes — some of whom are well into their 80s — come out and compete. Some of our employees tell us that they look forward to participating in this event every year. We are humbled by this award and appreciate the recognition.”

The annual Senior Day event attracts about 350 participants every year. KRADD, an economic and community development organization, organizes the event to highlight the vitality, athleticism, talents and mental acuity of area athletes aged 50 and above. This is done through a variety of athletic events and contests, ranging from card games and darts to basketball free throws and track events.

KRADD supports many aging programs in Breathitt, Knott, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Owsley, Perry and Wolfe counties, many of which overlap with Kentucky Power’s service territory.

Stacie Noble with KRADD said, “We couldn’t do Senior Day without Kentucky Power’s support. We appreciate all they do.”
