Bruce Hoehne was recently recognized for his 45 years of service to the Stanton County Public Power District. He began his career shortly after graduating from Stanton high school in 1974. Bruce started as a lineman, working in the construction crew and worked his way to being promoted to Operations Manager.
As an 18 year old kid, Bruce was excited to start work! In the days before bucket trucks and diggers, he spent his days driving pick-up trucks through the service territory; setting poles, pulling wire, and repairing storm damage. He has seen quite a lot of change in the last 45 years. Co-workers have come and gone, technology has slowly changed everything about the job he first learned how to do, and the building he has come to work in has morphed into the modern style we see today.
Tim Wurdinger was recognized for his 10 years of service as our Network Administrator.
