DPC's Genoa staff volunteer at De Soto Schools

Back-to-School 2020 just got better at the De Soto Middle and High School, thanks to six skilled employees from Dairyland's Genoa #3 power plant.  

Four Mechanics (Nate Hoover, Kurt Krause, Tom Nickelatti, Dave Wucherer), one Electrician (John Clements) and one Instrument Technician (Brian Ziegler) spent eight hours at the school recently, helping prepare the building for a safe student return. Some of the building materials were donated by Dairyland.
