Linemen from eight Virginia electric cooperatives who traveled out of state to help restore electric service following Superstorm Sandy have been honored by the Virginia, Maryland and Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC).
Each year since 1968, VMDAEC has sought through its Unsung Virginian award to recognize individuals who have rendered a significant service without having sought or received public recognition.
Instead of an individual award, this year the VMDAEC awards committee agreed to recognize 85 co-op crew members from seven electric cooperatives and 95 contract workers provided by Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative.
They spent as much as two weeks out of state following Sandy, working in cold, snowy conditions to “get the lights back on” for residents in New Jersey, Maryland and West Virginia
Representatives from these co-ops accepted their American Lineman Hero awards during a Monday luncheon in the Richmond Omni Hotel:
Central Virginia Electric Cooperative – Allan Thacker
Community Electric Cooperative – Rickey Brame
Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative – Robert Lankford
Northern Neck Electric Cooperative – Randy Thompson
Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative – Skip Hollcroft
