SECO Energy is proud to announce that Ryon Meyers, Key Accounts Consultant, has been named Sumter County Chamber Volunteer of the Year.
Ryon has dedicated numerous hours to many different projects in support of the Sumter County Chamber. Each month, Ryon has set up tables, chairs, audio and video equipment as well as volunteered for clean up before and after all chamber luncheons. He has attended all quarterly signature events and delivered welcome packages to all new chamber members.
“I am so proud of Ryon,” stated Barbara Shaw, SECO’s Manager of Key Accounts & Energy Services. “It warms my heart to have employees on my team willing to dedicate their time to give back to our community. I am so pleased that Ryon’s contributions and hard work are recognized by the Sumter County Chamber.”
Kathryn Gloria, SECO’s Vice President of Corporate Communications & Energy Services agrees, “I am humbled that many of our employees donate their time and talents to help others. As a not-for-profit cooperative, we support the communities we serve and our employees exemplify this through their willingness to lend a hand.”
Concern for Community is a key cooperative principle and SECO is proud that its employees take their personal time to volunteer within their communities. Recently, SECO employees have volunteered their time to United Way for the Day of Caring project in Marion County and pledged nearly $45,000 in donations to United Way for 2016.
SECO strives to be a good corporate citizen and partner to our members and the communities we serve. Our employees contribute countless hours of their free time in order to make a personal difference in their communities. Many SECO members also aid communities in need by agreeing to round up their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar. These extra pennies make a difference for local communities’ one penny at a time.
