Scott Sperry of Bath, SD, won the three-way race for the District 5 seat on the Northern Electric Board of Directors during the 75th Annual Meeting on September 13. Sperry is a lifelong member of Northern Electric Cooperative. He is a fourth-generation farmer who raises corn and soybeans and operates a hog finishing unit. Sperry's grandparents were the second farm energized when the co-op began electrifying rural Brown County in the 1940s. He hopes to contribute to the future development of the cooperative.

"I am looking forward to making a difference in my rural community and working with my neighbors to assist Northern Electric in continuing to provide safe, reliable, and economical electricity for future generations," Sperry said.

Sperry will fill the vacant seat left by Donna Sharp who reached her term limit of serving three consecutive three-year terms. Sperry defeated Brian Sharp of Bath, SD, and Beth Locken of Aberdeen, SD, in the three-way race for the open board seat.

Sperry and his wife Kathy live in Bath and have five adult children and three grandchildren.
