Phil High, Warren County REMC general manager, was recently honored for 50 years of service to the cooperative. He was recognized during the Indiana Electric Cooperatives’ virtual annual meeting in December. 

High also received an award for his service from Mike Conner, Warren County REMC board president, during the REMC’s December board meeting.

High began his career at the cooperative in 1964 as a summer job after graduating from Williamsport High School. He continued working summers there while attending Indiana State University. After his graduation in 1970, High was hired full-time working maintenance, and as a warehouseman and groundskeeper. 

In 1971, he became member services director and held that position until 1977. At that time, he became staking engineer. He continued in that position until December 2001 when he was named manager of engineering and operations. High became general manager in October 2005.

High and wife Shirley are lifelong residents of Williamsport. The couple have a daughter, Krista (Jason) Bone, and granddaughter, Opal Edstene, who reside in Indianapolis.

Everyone at Warren County REMC offers our best wishes to Phil. He is a fine example for us all of showing dedication to company, co-workers and community. 

We are grateful for the opportunity to work with him, and are proud to call him “boss.” Congratulations!
