Safest Employees, Smartest Students

Safety by the million
The managers and employees of Hickman-Fulton Counties Rural Electric Co-op, based in Hickman, have driven more than a million miles (1,307,762 to be exact) since January 2004 without a preventable accident.

Business scholars
A group of students from the Primary Leadership group of Owen County Primary School came to Owen Electric Cooperative’s Owenton headquarters with notebooks and a ton of questions.

Madison Brown, Allen Mason, Meredith David, Lilly David, Mercedes Bourne, and Haley Neeley made up the group selected by teachers, the principal, Sharen Hubbard, and Gifted and Talented coordinator Teena Gamble. Owen Electric Co-op was just one of their stops in Owen County.

“We are visiting successful businesses in Owen County…to learn why the business is so productive in our community,” says Gamble. “Owen Electric was top on our list, since they have been a productive business in our county for 74 years. They keep up to date with technology and energy efficiency to best serve their customers.”

Cooperative students
Nolin Rural Electric Co-op, based in Elizabethtown, helped sponsor six area high school students on a trip to Lexington to join students from around the state for a seminar on corporations, cooperatives, and other forms of business.

The event is part of the American Private Enterprise System (APES) program, offering lessons in motivation, self-confidence, teamwork, and problem solving in addition to economic education.

Nolin Rural Electric Co-op has been a sponsor of the Hardin County and LaRue County APES programs since they began more than 40 years ago. Electric co-ops across the state sponsor programs in about 35 counties. To learn more about the APES program, read Learning How Co-ops Compete.

The six students from the Nolin Rural Electric Co-op area were Lindsey Clement of Elizabethtown High School; Sean Deaton of Ft. Knox High School; Reza Haider of Elizabethtown High School; Skylar Jeffries of Central Hardin High School; Caleb Moore of Faith Home School; and Matthew Moreman of Elizabethtown High School.
