SEC Brings Bucket Truck to PECPS

Following Southside Electric Cooperative’s (SEC) historic winter ice storm restoration, Mrs. Toni Russell-Baker’s class at Prince Edward County Public School sent a wonderful drawing to the Cooperative to thank the lineworkers for their hard work, long hours and dedication. On April 16th, SEC’s Lineworker Bryan Mills visited Mrs. Russell-Baker’s class at PECPS with his bucket truck in appreciation for their thoughtful drawing and note.

“Seeing the students walking towards the bucket truck with their creative handmade hard hats on their heads was very special,” commented Bryan Mills. “While working to restore power following the severe ice storm was very challenging, seeing these very appreciative PECPS students makes the work meaningful.”

When Bryan Mills extended the bucket into the air, the students were beyond excited.

“We made the ‘Thank You’ card when we realized how much having the power out disrupted the lives of our students,” says Ms. Russell-Baker. “I had not considered how much ‘electricity’ contributes to the wellbeing of our children. We wanted to let SEC know how much they are appreciated.”

“We were all very excited when we found out they were coming to see us. Thank you, SEC!” - Ms. Russell-Baker
