“The educational assistance program gave me a career instead of just a job. It allowed me to open doors that otherwise would be closed for me. I’ve been with Jackson EMC for nearly 25 years, and I can tell you, they want to see you succeed. It’s a good work environment, they give you opportunities to better yourself and they really don’t limit you. I wouldn’t have been here this long if I didn’t respect the organization and see benefits from what I was doing.
