Together the 22 cooperative, including Clay-Union Electric Corporation, and the Union County Electric Cooperative, Elk Point, pledged a total of $25,000 to be used in the development of a new utility training field at MTI. Up to $21,000 is being matched by an anonymous donor, making the total raised $46,000.
