Longtime Entergy employee and Mountain View resident Everette Sadler Jr. has the keys to the city. Or at least the keys to the gates. More like the tool shed. “I have the keys to get to the lawnmower so I can keep the grass cut at our professional-grade disc golf course I helped create,” Sadler said recently, “which makes me pretty proud.”
Josh Vance has been familiar with Entergy all his life. He remembers the company’s strong community presence in his hometown of Brookhaven, Mississippi. More than a decade ago, Josh joined the company as an engineering co-op student. Since then he has held several engineering roles and served as a line supervisor. Today, Josh is Entergy Mississippi’s construction manager, based in Jackson.
We are working to help customers and communities hurt by the financial hardship during COVID-19
The men and women of Entergy Mississippi are always here when our state needs us – and that is even more true in times like this. That is why in addition to providing safe, reliable and affordable electricity to those sheltering in place at home during the peak of a spring storm season, our people are also working on solutions to help our customers and communities hurt by the financial hardship brought about during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The life of a lineworker is one of adventure, duty and love for family. It is also one that can, at times, include cold sandwiches and showers, up to 16-hour days bringing electricity back to disaster-stricken communities, and now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many added health precautions.
