Since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. The month is used to remember the important contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout our nation’s history. BPU and our customers have benefited from significant contributions from African American employees throughout the years. Today, we honor and remember the following African Americans who have retired with many collective years of service to BPU and to the Paris/Henry County community. Thanks to all of you!!

The current Leadership Henry County class visited BPU this morning as part of their Government Day activities. Our employees were able to share BPU history as well as current day BPU information with the group. We demonstrated a portion of the safety program that is used in schools and throughout the community. The class also saw a live version of our outage management system and explored the "MY BPU" app that is available for download.
