Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative’s 2021 Humphreys County District Membership Meeting was held on October 14 at Waverly Central High School. Larry Mayberry (150 votes) was elected to another four-year term on the MLEC Board of Directors; Crystal Daniel (39 votes) was also on the ballot.
In addition to voting, MLEC members who stayed for the business session viewed the 2021 Annual Report video. It highlighted employee service commitments, progress over the past year, reliability upgrade plans, community involvement, and a Meriwether Lewis Connect update. The production was dedicated to communities healing from the historic flooding in August.
Commander Jefferson Scudder, Post Commander Lou Lomber, and Post Trustee Ed Swanson represented the Humphreys County Honor Guard American Legion Post 34 and presented colors for the Pledge of Allegiance. Waverly Central High School Senior Tristan Mashburn was recognized during the meeting by MLEC President and CEO Keith Carnahan as the recipient of a $2000 scholarship in the cooperative’s annual short story contest.
Everyone who attended received an MLEC flashlight. Door prize winners of a $100 electric bill credit included Toni Brink, Donna Frazier, Melissa Porch, United Farm & Home Co-op, and Stephen Webb. Winners of a $250 electric bill credit were Marty Corlew and Kathey Oakley.
“Balancing social distancing guidelines for health and member participation in the meeting was a challenge, but we were committed to making things as easy as possible while still engaging with our members,” said Carnahan. “We appreciate those who attended and look forward to more opportunities in the future where we can fellowship with our members. We’re always here and welcome communication with those we serve.”
