HREA trustees re-electedApril 26, 2013
A group of more than 300 members and guests convened at Liberty High School April 18 to take part in the Harrison Rural Electrification Association annual meeting.
Power issues at the location and the immediate area led to an abbreviated meeting.
CEO and General Manager Terry Stout noted that his report as well as that of Board Chairman James Stuart were included in the meeting handout and that, in the interest of time, they would not be reading them the meeting. Sec./Treas. Darrell Powell did not read his report either, which also was included in the handout, but let HREA members know they are able to review the cooperative’s audit report at the office during normal business hours.
Results of the election were announced. Incumbent Mike Cross defeated challenger Jeffrey Nelson to continue serving as the director for HREA’s District 7. Ron Watson, District 5, and Powell, District 6, were unopposed and will serve another three-tear term on the board of directors.
It also was announced that members had approved a change to the cooperative’s code of regulations.
Stout announced Megan Talbott had been selected to participate in the Rural Electric Youth Tour. Along with representing HREA on the trip to Washington, D.C., in June, Talbott also was awarded a $500 college scholarship.
Stout recognized several employees during the meeting for reaching milestones in their service to HREA. Rick Fox was recognized for 30 years of service, Rob Davis for 20 years and Missie Stephenson for 15 years.
Following the meeting’s adjournment, door prizes were awarded highlighted by a number of energy credits. The evening began with a baked steak dinner prepared and served by the 4-H Interstate Exchange Group and entertainment was provided by Johnny Cochran and the Trailblazers.
