Sheffield Completes Certification


CHASE CITY - Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC) employee Wayne Sheffield has completed the final step in journeyman substation technician training offered by the Virginia, Maryland and Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC).   He began his career at the Cooperative as a meter reader/groundman for the Chase City District in January 1989 and has held several positions at MEC. Sheffield entered the substation technician apprentice program in January 2010 and after completing all assignments and testing, was officially certified in December. 

He was recognized during the February 14 meeting of the Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative Board of Directors held at the headquarters office in Chase City.  President and CEO John C. Lee, Jr., presented him with the certificate as directors and key staff looked on. Lee stated, “I would like to offer my congratulations to Wayne who is now a certified substation technician here at our cooperative and has worked hard to achieve that title. He is an exceptional employee, and I have no doubt that he’ll do his part in carrying on MEC’s legacy of outstanding service to its members.”

Lee added, “I would also like to recognize and express my appreciation to the crew members and co-workers who instilled in Wayne, from the day he began here, the importance of working safely and efficiently, how to complete tasks the right way, and who emphasized the high priority we place on customer service in our organization. We are proud of Wayne’s accomplishment and are certain that he’ll play a major role in taking great care of our members for many years to come.

“Last, but not least, I want to thank his wife, Judy, and their children, whose sacrifices allow Wayne to serve our members whenever the call goes out….thanks for unselfishly sharing him with us, Judy.” Sheffield and his wife, Judy, live in the Chase City area and have three children, Sarah, Daniel and Amber.
