It’s time to check in with two more of the nominees for the Touchstone Energy Cooperative Who Powers You contest. It’s being held by the region’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. Ken Carda is the Operations Manager for Bon Homme-Yankton Electric and he serves his community in Yankton by volunteering on the Town Board, as a first responder and he’s also the local fire chief. Our other nominee is Beau Larson, together with his group of volunteers for the Webster Wrestling Youth, he is powered by Lake Region Electric. Both Ken and Beau are nominees for making a difference in their communities. We sat down with them to find out more about how they’re doing that.
