Howard Eggleston Retires from Board of Directors
Howard Eggleston of Fremont County announced his retirement from the Sangre de Cristo Electric Association, Inc. Board of Directors in July.
Eggleston began his tenure at SDCEA in June, 1977. He has seen tremendous growth in the electric cooperative. When Eggleston first took office, SDCEA provided service to 3,500 meters in the region. Today the co-op has 12, 500 meters in the field.
Ruth Eggleston, Howard’s wife, has been a longtime member of the Colorado Women’s Task Force, an organization that raises funds to help pay to treat linemen’s burn injuries, serves as an educational branch for Colorado co-ops and acts to preserve the history of co-ops in the state.
“It’s been interesting to meet so many different people and to work with so many different people,” Eggleston said.
“I’ve worked with so many good, good people. I don’t know how we’ve been so lucky to hire such great employees.”
Thank you for your many years of dedication to SDCEA, Mr. Eggleston. We wish you the best in your future endeavors.
