Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives recently promoted Bethany Schunn and Chris Napier to Cardinal transition manager and Central Ohio Lineworker Training (COLT) instructor, respectively.
In her new role, Schunn will continue to lead a number of OEC’s on-site efforts to transition operational control of Cardinal Station from AEP Generation Resources to Buckeye Power. Schunn will also play a key role as OEC looks beyond the transition to identify the appropriate steps that will best position Cardinal for success as it begins a new chapter in its history.
In his new position, Napier will work with lead instructor Kyle Hoffman to further strengthen the COLT program, which already stands among the elite lineworker training programs with the recent addition of an indoor training facility in Mt. Gilead. Napier previously served as safety and loss control consultant at OEC.
