Ronald Boone Retires from Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative


CHASE CITY –In honor of his retirement, Ronald  Boone, Sr., was recognized recently at a  monthly meeting of Mecklenburg Electric  Cooperative’s board of directors.  Chairman of  the Board David Jones presented a Resolution of  Appreciation to Boone for his many years of  service to the member-owned organization. The  presentation was made at the Headquarters  office in Chase City in the presence of the other  10 board members and Mecklenburg Electric  Cooperative (MEC) senior staff members.


“We appreciate Ronnie’s dedication to his duties, and his commitment to our members, and we recognize and honor his 34 years of hard work on their behalf,” comments MEC President and CEO John Lee, adding “and while he’ll be missed, we wish him and Isabel the very best in this next chapter of their lives.”


Boone was hired as a meter reader/groundman in 1979 and was initially trained to record meter readings throughout the service territory and check facilities for conditions that would affect reliability and safety.  Throughout his years of service, he assisted with construction and maintenance of the Cooperative’s electrical system and was on call to restore power as outages occurred.  He also assisted with power restoration when the call for help came from sister electric cooperatives following severe winter storms and hurricanes.


During his employment at MEC he attended educational and safety training classes, served as recording secretary at monthly safety meetings, and was a member of the Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE).  He and his wife, Isabel, live in the Emporia area and have two children, Olivia and Ronald, Jr. (RJ). 


Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative is the not-for-profit consumer-owned energy provider to over 31,000 meters located in portions of Brunswick, Charlotte, Greensville, Halifax, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Pittsylvania, Southampton and Sussex Counties.  It is a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, headquartered in Chase City with district offices in Emporia, Chase City, and Gretna.
