CDE Lightband honored for community service


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.  – CDE Lightband was presented the Community Service Award by the Tennessee Municipal Electric Power Association during its annual conference in Nashville. This honor is awarded to recognize the commitment CDE Lightband has to the community and for the opportunities it provides employees to be involved in the city in which they live and work. 

“I am honored to receive this award on behalf of our employees,” said Brian Taylor, CDE Lightband General Manager. The staff at TMEPA really pulled a surprise and kept this award a secret until I passed the gavel. What a great way to end my presidency at TMEPA. We are very fortunate that our employees are committed to giving back to our community.” 

TMEPA accepts nominations for this award each year, evaluating electric utilities in each of three categories; large systems of over 30,000 members, medium systems from 10,000 to 30,000 members, and small systems under 10,000 members. As a large-sized electric utility, CDE Lightband was measured by its efforts to improve the social, cultural, educational or economic environment of its community, by the opportunities it provides for employee involvement and by demonstrating sustained performance and achievement as a member of TMEPA. 

CDE Lightband’s general manager, Brian Taylor, served as the President of the TMEPA Board of Directors. Taylor passed the gavel to Terry Wimberley of the Paris Board of Public Utilities during TMEPA’s annual conference. Taylor now serves as chairman of the Distributor Insurance Company (DIC) Board of Directors. 

“It’s been an honor to serve as president of TMEPA for this past year and look forward to working with the new president, Terry,” Taylor said.
