Congratulations to Sauney R. Pippin, Southern Rivers Energy, and Wayne Windham, Grady EMC. These two, along with Charles Rucks of Farm Credit System, joined an elite group of statewide leaders March 6 at the Georgia Cooperative Council’s annual meeting, where they were named 2017 Distinguished Cooperators. Chosen for their dedicated support and service to cooperatives and their unique business principles, the award recognizes outstanding achievement in the industry.
Pippin served as a board member with Southern Rivers Energy for 31 years, 17 of which were spent as vice chairman. Under his leadership, the co-op built and moved to its current office building in 1998, changed its name from Lamar EMC to Southern Rivers Energy and established the Operation Round Up® community grant program in 2005.
Windham’s career with Grady EMC spans more than 48 years. He has worked in every department—serving as meter reader, lineman and serviceman, member service manager, and ultimately chief operations manager.
We thank these electric cooperative champions for their many years of service to Georgia’s EMCs!
