Steve started his career with North- western Electric on August 17, 1982 on the brush crew. In March of 1984, he became an equipment operator and a year later became a Lineman Tech I working his way up the ranks and becoming a Journeyman Lineman in November, 1994. (1674001) He has seen a lot of changes during his 31 years with the Cooperative. Steve cited having more up-to-date tools, an increase in the number of bucket trucks available for jobs, and better communication between the CEO and employees as the changes that mattered most to him. Steve managed to work safely for most of his career, but he remembers having a couple of mishaps. His first mishap was when he cut his leg with a chainsaw and the second was when he lost a wire trailer off of a truck and the trailer ended up on its top. When asked what he liked best about working for Northwestern Electric, Steve said “I liked the people I worked with and my paycheck. And after I retire, I’m going to miss my co- workers and my paycheck.” Northwestern Electric honored Steve with a luncheon during the August safety meeting. CEO Ty- son Littau presented him with a new recliner as part of his retirement gift from Northwestern.


Steve Lawrence tries out the new recliner he received from NWEC as a retirement gift. He retired on Sept. 1 after 31 years of dedicated service to the Cooperative.


His plans for the future include camping, hunting, ranching, building wooden saddle stands and relaxing in his new recliner.


Steve and his wife, Nancy, have two sons – Jason Lawrence and wife Jen- nifer, and Jeremy Lawrence and wife Tammi. They have four grandchildren – Wyatt Baird, Roper Love, and Mat- thew and Kanaan Lawrence.
