Guernsey receives safety honor

Clark County REMC mechanic Mark Guernsey was awarded the Distinguished Service to Safety Award during the statewide Operations and Engineering Professional Section meeting last month in Indianapolis. The award is presented annually to one person in the state who considers safety a top priority.

“Mark takes his job to the next level. He makes sure that our fleet is top notch as well as ensures the safety of the crews when he works as a groundsman,” stated Josh Bohlsen, Clark County REMC operations supervisor.

Guernesy has been a mechanic and groundsman at the REMC since 1980. His hard work and attention to detail and safety make him an invaluable employee. Congratulations, Mark!
