Randolph EMC partnered with NC State and the Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership to host Mindy Thornlow at REMC’s Asheboro and Robbins headquarters this past summer.
Trinity High School Science teacher Thornlow was selected by the Kenan Fellows Program for the prestigious honor of a year-long career development program that included summer training on-the-job with a local electric cooperative in North Carolina.
Her favorite experience during her three-week internship was her time spent restoring power for an 88-year-old member.
Thornlow looks forward to teaching her high school students about careers in energy.
