SPEC Member Received Third Place in Nationwide Contest

Sue Murdoch and Shana Hyde

At South Plains Electric, we know our communities are filled with many unsung heroes who are making a difference.

For the fourth year, Touchstone Energy Cooperative® has held the #WhoPowersYou contest. This contest recognizes co-op members from across the country for their efforts in making a difference in their communities.

We are proud that one of our own members, Sue Murdoch, received third place in the nationwide contest and was awarded $1,500 to further her cause.

Sue created a program called Project Hope and works with her church and the Lubbock County Detention Center to put together fleece blankets for children who are removed from their homes and placed somewhere else through Child Protective  Services.

When Sue first started Project Hope, she had a vision for that every child in CPS would receive a blanket.

Sue has a heart for children and believes they should all have a sense of security, whether that is a teddy bear or a blanket. Through Project Hope, Sue has donated over 1,000 blankets in the last four years.

SPEC member, Shana Hyde, nominated Sue for this award. “I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of recognition for what she does. Sue she never gives up on people and truly loves them unconditionally,” Hyde said.      

The Operation Round Up Board voted to give Sue an additional $1,500 to help further her cause.

Thank you, Sue, for what you do for our community!
