A team of students in the electrical systems technology program from SUN Area Technical Institute in New Berlin recently visited our Sunbury Service Center.

Accompanied by their instructor, Van Reichelderfer, and Chuck Wood, PPL field manager and advisory board member for the school, the students saw demonstrations by PPL linemen, learned about various roles within the company and toured a new substation.

(You might remember reading about Chuck Wood’s work with schools in our service area. Chuck is one of a number of our employees who enjoy meeting with students to give them a direct view of life in the utility industry.)

Shown below is Cole Laubach, learning how Lineworker Trainee Morgan Hons makes a connection on a line.
