Pulse Names Leon Philpot and Staff of Rich Mountain Electric as Its Citizens of the Year

Each year, The Pulse selects a Citizen of the Year from among their Citizen of the Week features and this year, Leon Philpot and the staff of Rich Mountain Electric were chosen.

“Mr. Philpot has been an icon in our community with his many leadership roles through the years, besides being the general manager of Rich Mountain Electric. Then, when you combine that with each of the contributions all of their staff make throughout our community, besides keeping our county powered, we felt they were more than deserving,” said Pulse publishers David and LeAnn Dilbeck.
