Welcome to Western
On August 1, Western Cooperative hired Derek Keith as a Lineman Apprentice in WaKeeney. Keith, a 2022 Hill City High School graduate, attended Northwest Lineman College in Denton, Texas, following high school, where he went through the Electrical Lineworker Program.
Keith grew up helping his dad and grandfather on their Graham County family farm and is excited about the opportunity to work for his local electric cooperative, “Westen has a reputation as a place where you want to work. I am happy that I get to stay close to my family and start my career at the co-op.”
