Boeck Receives Writing Award P


eople’s Electric Cooperative (PEC) recently received recognition


in the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives (OAEC) annual communications competition.


Feature news story “Spicing T ings Up the Co-op Way” written by Jennifer Boeck, PEC’s Vice-President of Communications and People’s Powerline editor, won the Award of Merit for Best News Feature in the competition. Her story appeared in the May 2014 issue of this newsletter and told the story of Don and Flossie Sims’ jerky business located in Allen, Oklahoma, which has operated for the past 10 years as Don’s Lazy S Jerky.


“While it is a great honor to have a story selected as one of the best in the state, it is much more of an honor to acknowledge our outstanding member-owners,” said Boeck. “Outstanding stories happen inside PEC’s service area everyday because of our amazing members. Getting to tell their story is the greatest reward.”


A special dinner honored the award recipients during the statewide association’s annual Oklahoma Living University (OKLU) editor’s workshop held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this past November. Winning entries were displayed during the event.


Participants in the awards competition competed with Oklahoma’s 28 rural electric cooperatives.


T e People’s Powerline is PEC’s member newsletter which is circulated to approximately 15,000 individuals monthly. Boeck has been employed at PEC since January of 1999.


OAEC is a statewide association created and voluntarily supported by local electric distribution and generation/transmission cooperatives. T e association is comprised of 30 member systems: 28 in Oklahoma and two Arkansas systems that have a portion of their membership residing in Oklahoma.
