Warren RECC is celebrating National Lineman Appreciation Day on Monday with events scheduled throughout the Warren RECC district.
Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon signed a "Proclamation In Honor Of Linemen" at today's fiscal court meeting. Cannon was also attending a ceremony for linemen today in Morgantown.
“Warren RECC is committed to the seven cooperative principles that define our business model," said W. Scott Ramsey, President and CEO of Warren RECC. "Paramount among those principles is the fact that we are dedicated to our community and owned by our members. Our linemen are deeply committed to ensuring our members have safe, reliable power to support their everyday lives, regardless of the conditions. Today, we take the opportunity to thank them for their service and dedication. I would also like to thank the administrative staff who support their work every day by ensuring their safety and comfort in the field."
In December 2014, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Board adopted a resolution recognizing the second Monday of each April as National Lineman Appreciation Day. Today, organizations across the country took time out to honor the lineman that power their communities. Warren RECC’s linemen will be honored with lunches at each local office as well as other proclamations and visits from several County Judge Executives.
