INVESTING IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY

Supporting bright futures

Big city or rural community, we all deserve access to the best communications services.

Twin Lakes takes pride in supporting and investing in our local communities.

Twin Lakes Difference Grant

As part of its ongoing commitment to rural communities Twin Lakes, in conjunction with the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS), awarded approximately $102,000 to 22 local organizations in 2022 to enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and play in the Upper Cumberland region. These organizations range from schools, museums, fire departments, economic development groups and more. The Twin Lakes Difference Grant is offered annually through Twin Lakes to support local technology efforts to build and sustain our local communities.

Local School Support

Education of our local students is a top priority for Twin Lakes. Our youth assist in shaping our communities and Twin Lakes is proud to contribute to their success. In 2023, Twin Lakes donated $1 per student enrolled at every K-8 school in our local service area.

Project Graduation

Project Graduation is a post-graduation event supported by sponsorships from local organizations. Twin Lakes is proud to be a sponsor and help seniors celebrate. Congratulations to the Class of 2024!

FRS Scholarship

Twin Lakes partners with the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) to strongly support the continuing education of rural youth. The FRS offers an annual college scholarship program to help support students from rural America for their first year of college, university, or vocational-technical school. Congratulations to Harrison Lee of Clarkrange High School, recipient of a $2,500 FRS Scholarship. To learn more about any of these FRS programs, visit their website.

FRS Youth Tour

Every summer, the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) brings together high school students from across rural America to visit our nation’s capital and learn about rural telecommunications. Annually, Twin Lakes provides an opportunity for two students from the cooperative’s local serving area to attend the FRS Washington Tour. This year, Twin Lakes was proud to sponsor two local students, Erin Davidson from Jackson County High School and Paige Swafford from Clarkrange High School. Twin Lakes’ Youth Tour chaperone was Mrs. Angie Coffee, Customer Service Representative. Thank you for representing our community, Erin Davidson and Paige Swafford!
