Safety magic show returns

For the eighth year in a row, Aiken Electric Cooperative hosted an educational and magical morning for over 500 first-graders. Magician Scott Davis visited the cooperative to teach children electrical safety in an innovative magic show that touches on the serious matter at hand. His program, “Making Accidents Disappear,” is an educational and entertaining program that teaches children across the country the importance of electrical safety by utilizing humor and slight of hand.

“The program informs kids about the dangers of electrical outlets, downed power lines and water around electrical appliances,” said Aiken Electric Cooperative CEO, Gary Stooksbury. “We are pleased that this program is favored by the educational community and are always looking for ways to include education outreach in our marketing mix. Scott definitely fits the bill.”

Davis explained the program and its impact. “Because accidents, not diseases, are the number one killer of children in America, “Making Accidents Disappear” is a powerful tool that helps parents, teachers, and industry combat these otherwise needless tragedies. With proper education, accident related death is the most preventable death.”

“I know the teachers and students enjoy this visit every year,” Oakwood-Windsor principle Debra McCord said.

First graders from Aiken Elementary, Oakwood-Windsor Elementary, Warrenville Elementary, East Aiken Elementary and Merriweather Elementary visited Aiken Electric for the 2012 presentation of “Making Accidents Disappear.”

Scott Davis has been performing magic professionally since the age of 14. Davis performs over 350 live shows a year and has opened for late night talk show host, Jay Leno and in the showrooms of Las Vegas. He has been seen in Magic magazine and on television affiliates for ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX.

Aiken Electric, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, is a member-owned, nonprofit electric utility currently serving more than 45,000 customers in a nine county area in South Carolina.
