"Many people serve as firemen, first responders, civic organizations, etc. Serving at SYEMC is an opportunity to serve in an industry I have some familiarity with," Stephen said. "The electric power grid is THE most essential component of life as we know it today in the United States. Bringing, safe, reliable power to our rural homes, farms and businesses is a daunting task and we face a lot of challenges at Surry-Yadkin EMC. I hope to continue serving my friends and neighbors by being someone who will work to stay abreast of those challenges.

"Finding solutions with the best interest of our members in mind is always the primary goal and brings a great deal of satisfaction to me, personally. I enjoy fielding questions from our members, relaying information and generally helping folks get the help they need in any way I can.

"When I first came on the board, I remember hearing the comment that it is an honor to serve. That is absolutely a true statement and one I've tried to keep in mind as we consider the decisions required of us. This is a very complicated industry and many of our decisions are not easy ones. The bottom line, though, always comes down to this: 'What is best for all of our members?'"

Stephen is married to Mary (Cindy) Tucker Hutson and lives in the Eldora community near Ararat. He is a member of Salem Baptist Church, Dobson, and enjoys training pointing dogs.
