Posted on Jun 05 2022 in Miami-Cass REMC

Cindy Scott has been a Miami-Cass REMC member for 48 years. She has served on its board of directors since 2013 and currently serves as the board secretary/treasurer.  

Scott and her husband, Kevin, own and operate a grain/cattle farm and also have a bulldozing and excavating business. The couple have four grown children and 11 grandchildren. She is a full-time caregiver for her grandchildren. 

She is actively involved in church activities at Corinth Brethren Church. Scott has also served on several committees for the Cass County 4-H Association as well as president of the Cass County Cattleman’s Association. She has been the Adams Hoosier Harvesters 4-H leader for 48 years. In her spare time, Scott enjoys attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and activities.

Since joining the board, she has enjoyed the learning that comes from being a part of the electric cooperative business. She has gained much knowledge and understanding of the coordinated efforts it takes to make everything work for the good of the co-op’s members.

As the board looks toward the future, Scott said that keeping electric costs down, while maintaining excellent customer service, is always a priority. She also said that the board is looking into other services that REMC could offer, such as fast, reliable internet services for its rural membership.

Mark Hahn

Mark Hahn has been a member of Miami-Cass REMC for 41 years and has served on its board of directors since 2001. In addition, he previously served on the board of Indiana Electric Cooperatives. As an REMC board member, Hahn earned his Credentialed Cooperative Director’s certification from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

Hahn is a farmer by occupation. He and his wife, Cindy, have one daughter and attend Carpenter’s House Church. Hahn enjoys farming, traveling and spending time with family.

He indicated that the most rewarding aspect of being a part of the board is knowing that the employees do all they can to serve the membership and to provide excellent customer service. Hahn said their mission is what they do every day, providing low-cost energy while looking for other opportunities that may have a positive impact for the members.

Hahn indicated the board’s biggest challenges are improving on all aspects of keeping the power on for the membership — everything from tree trimming, to updating and building new lines — to keeping informed of legislative and legal issues impacting the REMC.

When asked what he hopes to accomplish if re-elected to the board, Hahn said, “We want to provide the best service we can. It is our job to keep the lights on. We want to be proactive with technology and legislative issues, and we want to have a positive impact in the community. In all that we do, we need to keep our members in mind.”
