Cornerstone Award Winner
Basin Electric Power Cooperative has a proud history of serving its membership through innovative energy solutions that bolster and sustain local and regional economies and enhance community life in rural towns and cities. To honor those who have made significant contributions to rural electrics and communities, Basin Electric periodically bestows its Cornerstone Award and Cooperative Spirit Award on individuals who have made outstanding contributions to rural electric cooperatives.
The Cornerstone Award is Basin Electric's highest award. It honors an individual whose leadership and outstanding service to electric cooperatives has been a "cornerstone" for Basin Electric, its member systems, and the rural Americans they serve.
The award will be given only to individuals truly deserving significant recognition and, as such, the award may not be presented every year.
Award recipients will be current or past leaders in, or supporters of, the cooperative movement.
The recipient's leadership, personal commitment, vision and business endeavors will be both distinguished and extraordinary and will have made a difference in the lives of the rural Americans, Basin Electric and its member systems served.
