Commitment to Community

Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative recently made a $3,000 contribution to the Hickman County Economic Development Association.

The association coordinates efforts between utilities, government and other organizations to create jobs, recruit investment and implement other economic and community development strategies.

“One of our core values is commitment to community,” says MLEC President and CEO Hal Womble. “Supporting organizations such as these is one way we can put that commitment into action and enhance local vitality and growth for the members we serve.”

“When we can help with the creation and retention of jobs and community improvements, it fosters an improved economic well-being and quality of life for the people we serve,” says Vanessa Clayborn, member services supervisor for MLEC. “While it helps the cooperative, our main focus is to see the rural areas we call home not only survive but thrive.”

The cooperative also assists two other community development associations, the Humphreys County Economic Development Council and the Lewis County Economic Development Council.
