"I feel privileged to work for an organization that sees the value in community work," Tedder-Loffland said. "While sometimes it is difficult to quantify the financial benefit of social service activities and youth leadership training, a financial statement cannot tell the whole story. OEC is and always has been about building communities and I am proud to be a part of it." While serving as editor, Tedder-Loffland has been


A


active in the Norman Chamber of Commerce Norman NEXT for young professionals where she co-chairs the Community Activism team. She has served on the United Way of Norman Income Council for three years and is president of the newly formed Little Axe Community Foundation. "I have loved putting together this magazine. It has been the impetus to the creation of new relationships with members and community leaders," said Tedder- Loffland. "Now, I am very excited about my new duties. Working for the community is the best part of my job— now I get to do more of it! I am a Norman native, but I'm looking forward to becoming more involved in the other towns we serve."

OEC News is Brianna Wall who previously coordinated youth and Touchstone Energy programs. She has written, designed, and edited the internal OEC employee newsletter since 2012 and is more than ready to get to work on the member magazine. In June, Wall became the ninth co-op


communicator in Oklahoma to earn the prestigious NRECA Certified Cooperative Communicator (CCC) designation for which she submitted a comprehensive portfolio of her work and sat for a difficult and extensive exam lasting several hours. "I learned about every side of the electric industry—


from legislation and the formation of the REA to the generation and transmission side," Wall reported. "Ten I had to hone my communication skills—written, verbal, crisis, mass media—I spent about 1-2 hours a day for three months studying for the exam, and in the end it paid off." Wall graduated from Stigler High School in 2006


where she comes from a co-op family—her father is the general manager of Cookson Hills Electric Cooperative. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Relations and a Master of Arts in Human Relations with an emphasis in media communication in 2012. She and her husband live in Moore where Wall is a member of the Moore Chamber of Commerce Moore Involved program for young professionals.
