The LaGrange County REMC board of directors recently appointed Clifford Hibbs to represent the membership in District 4 following the passing of Director Mark Bontrager.
Hibbs has been a member of the cooperative for 27 years. A Westview High School graduate, he attended Glen Oaks Community College. In 1993, he received his certification from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and now instructs others at the academy and teaches survival tactics to local police officers.
He has served the residents of LaGrange County for more than 27 years as an officer with the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department. He has received several awards and honors, including three lifesaving awards and letters of commendation from EMS/Flight/Hospital and Fire departments. He has participated in community events such as Make A Difference Day, Shop with a Cop, and Halloween and Heroes, and has assisted with Health Fair Days at local Amish schools to raise awareness.
Hibbs; his wife, Sandy; and their family reside near Shipshewana. The Hibbses are members of The New Life Fellowship Church. In his free time, he enjoys camping, working on classic vehicles, and spending time with family.
“I look forward to serving the members of LaGrange County REMC in this new capacity,” stated Hibbs. “The REMC does a great job of providing safe and reliable electric service and also contributes to the welfare of this community in many different ways. I’m honored to be a part of the cooperative.”
LaGrange County REMC welcomes Hibbs to its board of directors.
