TAYLORSVILLE, Miss. – America’s electric cooperatives have designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day.
On April 11, Southern Pine will honor the hard-working men who often work in challenging conditions to keep the lights on.
“Electric linemen do not often receive the recognition they deserve,” said Donald L. Jordan, Southern Pine general manager. “They work all hours of the day, often in hazardous conditions far from their families, going above and beyond to restore power to their communities. Our linemen, as well as linemen from across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”
Southern Pine invites members to take a moment to thank a lineman for the work they do. Use #ThankaLineman to show your support for the men and women who light our lives.
Southern Pine, a member-owned not-for-profit cooperative, was established in 1938. Southern Pine distributes power to more than 66,000 members in 11 central and south Mississippi counties.
