Decatur County REMC hosts Greensburg Community High School students for a field trip. Students learned about the electric utility industry including generation, transmission, safety, and career opportunities.

Decatur County REMC (DCREMC) recently hosted a class of Greensburg Community High School students.  Line Superintendent Pat Nobbe and lineman Brian AmRhein shared how the electric utility industry operates from energy generation to distribution and beyond.  Students also were introduced to tools, equipment, and necessary training required for lineman.    

“Decatur County REMC is proud to partner with our local school systems to educate students about electric safety, career opportunities, and the value of the cooperative in our community,” said Rachel Sullivan, corporate relations manager for DCREMC.  

DCREMC has a long history of supporting and advocating for the community’s youth through programs like Touchstone Energy Camp, YIndiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C, Cooperative Calendar of Student Art contest, and by supporting our local Champions of Youth, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Decatur County Parks and Recreation, Decatur County Family YMCA, Girls Inc., 4-H, and more.  “We encourage teachers, club leaders, and program administrators to reach out for educational or partnership opportunities for your groups,” said Sullivan.
