Cullman Electric Cooperative board member James C. Fields has just humorously recounted noteworthy episodes from Smith’s career history while bringing tears to many in the room.

Fighting back tears himself, Smith has launched into an emotional and touching remembrance of his many years at the Cooperative while imploring the remaining employees to embrace change, think and act ‘outside the box’ and to take care of every customer within their the vast electrical system.
