Welcome to REC

Hello and welcome to Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative on-line! Whether you are speaking to us by phone, in person at either one of our office locations, or visiting us on-line, we hope our proud tradition of service shines through. Serving the needs of our membership is, and always has been, our number one priority. Thank you for your continued patronage.

Congratulations in order

Youth Tour--We had some tremendous area youth meet with our board of trustees last night as part of the Youth Tour selection process. Six kids – representing four counties – were the top contributors to our 2015 Youth Tour essay contest and made the board’s decision very difficult. In the end, Whitney Lawson of Vinita High School will represent Craig County, Rachel Wallis of Pryor High School will represent Mayes County, Cheyenne Houck of Grove High School will represent Delaware County, and Christian Folks of Miami High School will represent Ottawa County. Should one of the above individuals not be able to attend, Carsyn Spurgeon of Vinita High School was selected as a first alternate and Courtney Stott of Pryor High School was selected as a second alternate.


Scholarships--Winners of the $1,000 REC college scholarship for 2015 have been selected. They are: Chloe Price of Jay (Delaware County), Collin Sanders of Vinita (Craig County), Hannah Barker of Commerce (Ottawa County), and Alexis Holleyman of Salina (Mayes County). Congratulations to these outstanding students!


Energy Camp--Energy Camp essays have been judged! The winners are – drum roll, please – Remington Ward (Locust Grove Schools), Tiffany Ayres (Bluejacket Schools), Tanner Taylor (Adair Schools) and Patrick Hallacy (Afton Schools). Congratulations to these students!
