Stakeholder Success Story

Glenn Miller, President and CEO of the Holmes-Wayne Electric Cooperative, Inc., has been around the HCEDC since its inception in 2004. A group of investors pledged funds to launch the council and the first board hired an executive director whose grant writing expertise helped many Holmes County businesses. Miller is pleased by the growth he has seen in Holmes County and extols the good work the HCEDC does, not only for recipients of its help, but also investors in its work.
