Team SEMO Helping in LA

by Sean J. Vanslyke - sean@gosemo.com

COVID-19 continues to linger and change the way we live, work, learn and play. My wife Debbie and I miss seeing our daughter and her family in Seattle, Washington. We miss hugging our grandchildren. However, we have friends who have children in Asia and only got to see their grandchildren once a year – if they are lucky – before the contagion. Perspective helps.

October 2020 | Governor Visits Co-op

Sean & Governor

by Sean J. Vanslyke - sean@gosemo.com

For the first time in SEMO Electric Cooperative's 82-year-old history, the Governor of Missouri and the First Lady visited the cooperative's office in Sikeston. The purpose of Governor Mike Parson's and First Lady Teresa Parson's stop was to announce a $142,000 matching grant for SEMO Electric's fiber project. The funding will help provide service to 60 underserved homes. The state is using federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act money to pay for the broadband funding.
