Saying Goodbye to Sullivan

Kay Sullivan can remember walking into the Wiregrass Electric Cooperative office for her first day on the job.

“Things have really changed throughout the years, for the better,” she says.

Sullivan retired as the manager of member accounts on February 28 after 27 years of service at WEC. From Malvern, she moved to Hartford after she and her husband, Bobby, married. They celebrate 47 years of marriage this month.

Sullivan was working at a small, family-owned fertilizer company before she got the opportunity to come on board at WEC.

“I was very blessed to be able to get a job here, and it was a good job,” she says.

One of the perks was that she only had about a 3-mile commute to work each day.

“Kay is a great example of what a cooperative employee stands for,” says WEC Chief Operating Officer Brad Kimbro. “Ever since joining the team she has been committed to serving the members of WEC and going above and beyond to help provide them the best service possible. We are going to miss her, but we are happy for her as she transitions to the next stage of her life.”
