2021 Year in Review
John says, " When I was inducted into HKN as a second
year Electrical Engineering student at Purdue, it gave me
confidence that I was doing well in Electrical Engineering
in a tough, competitive curriculum. This confidence has
remained with me for over 50 years since my induction
on May 2, 1971. The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative has
influenced many undergraduate Electrical Engineering
students to take power engineering courses and to have
internships and co-op work sessions in the power and
energy industry. Both IEEE PES and HKN have helped
my career so significantly that Jo-Ann and I wanted to
'give back' to show our appreciation. I've been an IEEE
member for over 50 years, and Jo-Ann and I have been
married 42 years, so Jo-Ann has been an important
partner with me in IEEE! "
Throughout his years in the electric utility industry,
John has pursued his passion for encouraging young
people to become involved in power engineering. Last
October, he presented two sessions for the IEEE-HKN
Student Leadership Conference. The first discussed 12
things to remember when living and managing a career.
The second dove into building a successful, long-term
mentor-mentee relationship. He presented this session
with one of his current mentees, Sabrina Helbig, Beta
Delta, University of Pittsburgh.
In 2011, John volunteered to participate in the scholar
selection process of the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus
Initiative, wherein he evaluated and scored applications
in the first five years of the initiative from 2011 through
2015. He would have continued, but he was termlimited
after five years! " I was impressed with the quality
of the student applications and encouraged that these
motivated, exceptional students were the future of IEEE
PES and our industry " , John explained.
John served on the IEEE PES Governing Board for 12
years, where he held elected positions as Secretary and
President. He served on the IEEE Board of Directors
as IEEE Division VII Director and the IEEE Standards
Association Board of Governors. During the five decades
John has been a part of the IEEE community, his
generosity and commitment to the ideals of IEEE have
become well known and we are grateful for all he and
Jo-Ann do every day to make the community stronger
and ready to face the next challenge!
