Reflecting on the 2017 holiday season, some employees had more fun than others. Read John Wiley’s firsthand account of lessons learned from spending Christmas in isolation after the Norovirus struck him like a “seasick crocodile.”
Two employees are also resting and recuperating after a grueling two-week period of performing in their church’s annual Christmas production. A Richmond favorite at the West End Assembly of God church, the play usually features Brenda Hardy singing and acting, while David Rainer does everything from dancing to working on the set.
And as we welcome a new year, some employees are starting fresh.
The company recently granted intern Karlitza Molina-Santiago a scholarship to transfer from the University of Puerto Rico to Virginia Commonwealth University after her home was devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria. Check out her first-person story about surviving the storms and starting over in a new city.
Lee Kuykendall also is opening a new chapter of his life this year; he transitioned from intern to full-time employee on Jan. 1. He joined Dominion Energy after two deployments to Afghanistan with the U.S. Marine Corps, and his fellow infantryman, Bryce Healey, coincidentally started with the company not long after Lee.
And Michelle Flowers is still adjusting to a big change in her life. After fostering more than 50 children, she recently adopted three—15-year-old Kaliyah, 14-year-old Antonio, and 6-year-old Nazeer.
John Seal also is experiencing the joys of parenthood. His 5-year-old daughter, Makenzie, wrote a letter thanking her dad for his service as a lineman. Read her sweet letter for yourself.
Finally, continuing a series to find out more about the interesting jobs across our company, I spent “a day in the life” of a gas service lead in Salt Lake City, Utah.
