Wayne Child honored with NRECA award

Wayne-ChildLongtime Tri-State director Wayne Child received a 2013 Regional Service Award at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Regions 7 and 9 meeting held last week in Portland, Ore. Child, who has announced his intentions to retire from cooperative service later this year, has represented member co-op High West Energy (Pine Bluffs, Wyo.) on Tri-State’s board for the past 30 years. He also has represented Tri-State on Basin Electric Power Cooperative’s board since 1985.

“Wayne has been at the forefront of significantly growing, developing and improving the co-ops on whose boards he sits,” said NRECA CEO Jo Ann Emerson. “His stewardship of Tri-State, Basin Electric and High West Energy through acquisitions, mergers and many other complex business dealings underscore the value he brings to these co-ops and their consumer-members. These bold actions have allowed for risk mitigation and better positioning in regional power markets, and they are why we proudly recognize him today,” she said.
