The 79th annual Southern Pine Electric Membership Meeting was held in Taylorsville, Miss. on Nov. 9.

A crowd of over 600 people gathered, including statewide officials, Electric Cooperatives of Mississippi staff, law enforcement, Cooperative Energy staff, retired employees and members from across eleven counties. Southern Pine employees also hosted a Veterans Memorial Booth to recognize veterans for decades of service to our nation.

He also commended and thanked the men and women of the operations staff for their exemplary work during storm restoration efforts on June 16 and on their willingness to assist other cooperatives across the nation during emergencies. 

Southern Pine also announced its Adopt-a-School Program where employees, teachers, parents and community members will work together to provide needed resources for students and young people through its service area. The first school selected for the program is Hopewell Elementary in Covington County.
