Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative has chosen Dwight Bates of Centerville to lead its Hickman County District Office when current manager Marshall Carothers retires in January. He steps into the position with 30 years of service to MLEC.
Bates’ background in MLEC’s engineering department, working directly with members on new services, and assisting line crews in outage situations will be a benefit as he transitions into this new role. He began training with Carothers in December.
“I’m looking forward to working with our members and helping where I can,” says Bates.
Dwight and wife Wanda make their home in Centerville. He enjoys hunting, fishing, photography and cooking for friends and family.
