G&T’s board lauded for line school support

At Tri-State’s Oct. 5-6 board meeting in Westminster, the association was recognized by Trinidad State Junior College president Felix Lopez for its support and contributions in helping establish a line tech program at the aforementioned southern Colorado institution.

Like most electric utilities in the nation, Tri-State is faced with a significant workforce retirement and turnover during the next five years and as part of its succession planning program, it has pledged support of a number of newly established utility-based training programs throughout its four-state service territory.

In addition to an award plaque that Lopez presented to board chairman Rick Gordon, Bill Wood, former San Isabel Electric (Pueblo West, Colo.) manager and current instructor for the Trinidad State lineman’s program, provided an update on the success of the three-year-old school and requested continued support by Tri-State’s member co-ops.
