REC employees volunteer at the Special Olympics State Games
This year during the 2019 Special Olympics Oklahoma State Summer Games in Stillwater, REC sent five volunteers who helped with the event. REC’s employees joined 18 other electric cooperatives in sending over 100 volunteers for this three-day event.
REC sent District Lineman Randy McAlister, Senior Mechanic Allan Kelley, Mechanic Assistant Jacob Trammell, Apprentice Line Worker Dalton Wilson and Member Services Representative Steven Beck. During their time volunteering, these five helped on the track encouraging the participants and kept time during the timed events.
This year marks the 50th anniversary for the event and there were more than 5,500 athletes from across the state participating. The participants competed in track and field, bocce, bowling, golf, horseshoes, powerlifting, basketball and softball.
