The people are the story

I’m Britt Davis, and I am the new editor for Indiana Connection. I’m excited to step into this role and honor the legacy of the editors who came before me. 

I’ve spent most of my career as the editor of a group of regional construction magazines that cover the United States. Through that position, I learned that while reporting the various aspects of construction projects are important, the real story is the people who work tirelessly every day to make those projects a reality. 

As I start this new position, I want to keep that lesson in mind. Much like when I started editing construction magazines, there will be a lot to learn about the electric cooperative industry. But one thing I already know is that the people who make up your co-ops and your communities should be the real focus of our magazine. Being born and raised in Indiana, I know the people of this state are genuine and always willing to lend a hand to their friends, family, and neighbors. “Hoosier Hospitality” is not just an expression. 

I graduated from Indiana University and live in Indianapolis with my husband, Brooks, and our 1-year-old daughter, Gwen. When we’re not chasing her around, we are cheering hard for IU and the Colts with our friends. Football Sundays are a very big deal in our house. 

If you have an idea to share, I would love to hear from you. My inbox is always open.
