Southwest Electric Crew Helps Loyd Star School

A Southwest Mississippi Electric crew assisted Loyd Star School on Friday, August 18, by installing new lights at their football field.  “Our employees are proud of the fact that they are part of a Member-owned cooperative that operates in the best interest of the community,” said Kevin Bonds, CEO/General Manager.  “One of the ways we do that is helping the schools in our service area.”

Loyd Star purchased new lights and the crew installed them in preparation for the football season.  “Loyd Star School and the Lincoln County School District are very humbled to be a part of Southwest Electric.  There is no way we could operate as efficiently as we do without Southwest’s commitment to a quality product to Members such as us,” said Robin Case, Principal.  “It takes every facet of the community to keep schools running productively and Southwest is an incredible partner.”

The six-man crew of Micah Gandy, Jake Knight, Josey Carithers, Chris Cole, Taylor Hollowell and TJ Floyd was joined by local Serviceman Bruce Butler.
