Energizing ALL generations
As we read about opportunities and leadership at Kentucky colleges and universities in this month’s issue of Kentucky Living, we are reminded of the importance of education in the communities we serve.
Nolin RECC proudly supports our local schools by offering college scholarships and by inviting students to participate in a program that could earn them a free week-long trip to Washington, D.C. In addition, we help to sponsor a high school business and economics seminar that focuses on cooperative education, and Nolin continuously teaches electrical safety to students of all ages. We know our expectations for the next generation can only be as great as our commitment to the students who comprise it.
Our hope is that the students of today become the leaders of tomorrow. We need their evolving talents and initiative to help us continue to serve you and help our communities thrive.
Our longtime member-owners understand the unique relationship we enjoy. They know that members own Nolin, and that we are a not-for-profit business established to provide at-cost electric service. Longtime members know that we are governed by a board of directors elected from our membership, which sets the policies and procedures of YOUR co-op.
But, we can’t take that knowledge for granted. If you are a younger member, perhaps you do not realize that you are actually one of the owners of Nolin. That’s the unique way a cooperative works—they are owned and controlled by their members.
So, as we talk about education, we are committed to doing our part to educate all our members about what it means to be a member of Nolin RECC. I encourage you to read Kentucky Living, which exists to celebrate the energy of Kentucky by educating and engaging members of Kentucky’s electric cooperatives.
And, I encourage you to ask questions and become involved with the efforts of Nolin to improve the quality of life for everyone—our longtime members as well as our new and future generations of members.
