Dennis Sumpter retires after 32 dedicated years

Dennis Sumpter, who worked at Associated Electric Cooperative’s Thomas Hill Energy Center for 32 years, retired last month. He began as a general utility first period, the entry level job in operations, back in May 1983. “When I started here I saw a lot of these guys wearing the hard hat, ‘25 years.’ (of service). I said back then, ‘If I could just make that.’ It took a long time, but it didn’t seem so bad now,” he said.
