SVEC’s 2018 Hometown Military Hero Overall Winner — Sandra Webb
During 2018, Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative took time to recognize local military veterans who have given their time and risked their lives in service to our country to keep us safe and free. With input from our members, we conducted a contest to honor these brave and patriotic members of our co-op communities.
We asked our members to nominate individuals from our service area who have served our country and are still giving their time and talents to make their communities better places to live.
We honored a member/group each month — February through December, excluding September — then offered the entire SVEC membership the opportunity to vote on the overall winner of the Hometown Military Hero contest. Nearly 2,000 votes were cast for the 10 nominees with Sandra Webb coming out on top as our overall winner of a $1,000 grant for the organization of her choice — the Marion County Community Ministries Food Bank, an organization where she spends roughly 20 hours per week volunteering.
SVEC thanks all those who took time to nominate the Hometown Military Heroes who inspire them and those who voted in the overall competition. But, most of all, we thank all of the veterans of our service area who have given of their time and resources to serve our country and communities.
Congratulations, Sandra Webb, and thank you for your selfless service to others.
