June 2013 Fathers power our communities A


s a child, I was basically a mama’s girl. But I also had the best dad any little girl could


ask for. His career choice wouldn’t have been considered common or well-known. He wasn’t a doctor, lawyer, teacher, salesman, etc. My dad was co-owner of the Ellis County Abstract Company.


When I was two, my mom decided to go back to work and joined my dad at the abstract office. Since they owned their owned business, I went to work everyday with my parents. Part of my dad’s job was to do house appraisals. He would go out and measure houses and determine what their present market values were. Occasionally, he would take me with him. I remember sitting on a box in the front seat of our car (we didn’t have car seats back then) so I could see out the window. I also got to hold the end of the tape measure for him while he measured the house. I always felt special when I accompanied my dad on his job.

much different than I was. They look up to their fathers, too—only they look 40 feet up. Fathers at Northwestern Electric work in rain and snow, day and night, when duty calls. If a storm triggers outages, these fathers don’t play Monopoly by candlelight or tell bedtime stories. They charge into the fray to fix what was broken. Some dads work in the eye of the


storm. Others take action behind the scenes in our dispatch center, track-


ing problems and directing crews to trouble spots. Working togeth-


er, these brave men restore power to our communities. You can hear their sons and daughters cheering them on. The children of

Northwestern Electric linemen grow up with men who dedicate their lives to connecting neighbors to comfort. It’s not an easy job. The hours are long, and tasks are dangerous. But the payoff—making life better for all of us—fuels these resilient men. My dad passed away several years ago but I will always remember his dedication to his job. He offered a needed service to the community and he had great customer service skills. I had the privilege of working for my dad part-time throughout my high school years and full-time after I got married. (981426001) He taught me to think about the bigger picture, to find a job I’m passionate about that helps the community. Eventually, I found my way to Northwestern Electric and a career I absolutely love. And I believe the linemen of Northwestern Electric found their calling too.


June is a time to celebrate fathers.


Let’s honor the fathers who keep our communities strong. Happy Father’s Day.
