Power Source Volunteers
In 2000, South River EMC established the Power Source Volunteers, or PSV. The PSV is a group of volunteers who work on behalf of the Cooperative as goodwill ambassadors in the community to enhance South River EMC's ongoing public relations efforts. Each year they hold fundraising events which benefit students in the South River EMC service area through scholarships, as well as hosting giveaways, such as food baskets, to members.
The Volunteers are comprised of a member representing each directorate district within the Cooperative's service area. The members of the Power Source Volunteers are; Richard Barnhill; Dixie Coats; Betsy Williams; Rebecca O'Dell; and Sandy Spears. Julie McLeod is the cooperative representative in the group.
Each year the Power Source Volunteers create four beautiful baskets for members to register to win. The baskets come complete with all the goodies for either the Thanksgiving or Easter meal, a $50 gift card for your meat selection, as well as a credit on your electric account.
If you would like more information about the Power Source Volunteers, please call South River EMC at 892-8071 or e-mail an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Power Source Volunteers, or PSV, serve on the scholarship selection committee for the South River EMC scholarships offered each year. In 2020, college scholarships were awarded to South River EMC members' children.
Receiving a $1,000 scholarship was Paige Cameron, daughter of Anthony and Amy Cameron of Fayetteville. Receiving scholarships of $500 were: Madelyn Slade, daughter of Gregory and Sheri Slade of Hope Mills; Logan Blackburn, son of Robert and Gina Blackburn of Clinton; Kammeron Lee, daughter of Jason and Angela Lee of Dunn; and Bethany Strickland, daughter of Jeffrey and Christen Strickland of Dunn.
