Jean McKee

Jean McKee

On Feb. 29, employees of Central Valley Electric Cooperative hosted a celebration honoring the retirement of Jean McKee.

McKee began working at CVE in 1981, and for 34 years, she served as executive secretary. In CVE’s 78-year history, there have been only eight general managers, and McKee had the privilege to work for four of them.

When asked what has changed over her years of service to the co-op, McKee said, “When I first started at CVE, I used a manual typewriter for contracts, right-of-ways, and general correspondence. Then things gradually started to be done on a computer.”

McKee says she will miss the people at CVE the most. She plans to stay busy with church activities, catching up on her reading, organizing her house, and possibly getting a part-time job. She also plans to do volunteer work and visit her family in Virginia and Texas.

CVE would like to thank Jean McKee for her service to the coop and wish her the best in her retirement.
