Randolph EMC Teaches Students about Electrical Careers, Safety
Tabernacle student gets his REMC wings

Asheboro, NC - At the end of the school year, REMC lineworkers visited Tabernacle Elementary in Asheboro for the school’s career day. Linemen Rodney Haithcock and Ryan Kivett, and Apprentice Linemen Dakota Smith and Tanner Perdue explained the responsibilities of an electrical utility worker and the duties they encounter on any given day.

The students in Julie Perdue’s first grade class enjoyed learning the functions of the bucket truck and trying on the flame-resistant gloves that lineworkers wear on the job. Randolph EMC employees encouraged the students to think about their future - especially the stable and rewarding job of keeping the lights on for rural North Carolina. Randolph EMC has a long history of supporting educators and students in our five-county region.

If your school is planning a career event in the coming school year, please contact Nicole Arnold, Communications and Public Affairs Manager, at Nicole.Arnold@RandolphEMC.com for more information, or call her at 336-625-5177.
