"Not everybody can say they get to work on high voltage electricity. Not every job gives you the opportunity to make people happy such as [by] restoring their power. Not every job you get to drive snow cats or take helicopters to remote locations. It takes a certain breed to do this job and everybody respects it." -- Brad Kegley, student in Electrical Power Distribution
