Lineman Chad Cornwell honored as Father of the Year
Early last month, Enerstar employees, family, and friends of the Chad Cornwell family gathered for a celebration of his “Father of the Year” award. The celebration was held at Enerstar and consisted of a delicious breakfast from Mill Creek Restaurant in Clarksville, and recognition from EnerStar CEO Mike Clark. A very special presentation was also made by Chad’s first daughter, Brea Like. Brea read the nomination letter that she sent to the Association of Illinois Electric Co-ops earlier this year to all in attendance so everyone could hear why Chad was so deserving of this award.
Chad is not only an EnerStar family member, but is also a member-owner of the cooperative. This makes him the first recipient of the award to fill both of those roles. Chad was also presented with two different gifts from both AIEC and his EnerStar family.
“There was no doubt or discussion about who the winner of this award would be when going through the nomination letters,” Valerie Cheatham, representative from AIEC, said.
EnerStar is very proud to call Chad one of our own, and we can’t wait to watch his family grow with the help of their wonderful father.
