Indiana Electric Cooperatives named Jeremy Montgomery the recipient of the 2019 Tom Taylor Award. Montgomery, energy advisor at Parke County REMC, was presented the award during the Marketing, Member Services and Communicators (MMSC) professional section fall meeting Sept. 6.

“Not only does Jeremy have an infectiously positive attitude, he is willing to lend a hand. He is a trusted peer who willingly shares his knowledge and seeks opportunities to lift others up,” said Chadd Jenkins, CEO of Parke County REMC “He is committed to doing the right thing, whomever it benefits.”

The award is presented annually to an Indiana electric cooperative member services employee who has demonstrated excellence in leadership, attitude and commitment to electric cooperative principles. The award is named for the award’s first recipient and longtime Boone REMC member services representative, C. Tom Taylor, who lived by the philosophy of “non sibi, sed aliis” – not for self, but for others.
