WARSAW — Kosciusko REMC bids a fond farewell to Bruce Goslee, president and CEO of KREMC.
Goslee has helped keep the lights on for Hoosiers for over four decades, said a news release from Kosciusko REMC.
“I started working in the electric utility business when I was 19 years old,” Goslee said. “Providing electricity to the community I love has been my life.”
Goslee led the cooperative into the 21st century through defining projects like KREMC’s automated meter infrastructure (AMI), a new three-phase system, additional substations, and a fully updated facility. He has been a mentor for linemen and a torch carrier for those who came before him. Goslee credits the employees of KREMC for the cooperative’s success.
A strong advocate for today’s youth, Goslee impacted the lives of countless Hoosiers through the programs he strongly supported at the cooperative. Those include Touchstone Energy Camp, Youth Tour, Page Day, and education scholarships. Goslee believed in recognizing student achievements with in-person congratulations and words of encouragement.
Outside the office, Goslee shared his expertise with numerous community groups and organizations. He served as president of the Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation board. He helped develop bylaws and policies for Indiana Electric Cooperatives (IEC), and supported and advocated for electric line employee safety through his position on IEC’s job safety and training committee.
He also served on several committees and board positions for Wabash Valley Alliance, KREMC’s generation, and transmission power provider in Indianapolis. Goslee’s influence has been far-reaching, and he has invested in the community he loves time and time again.
He leaves KREMC in the hands of his long- time colleague, Kurt Carver. The two have worked closely together for over three decades. They have weathered many storms together and successfully restored many outages.
As he approaches retirement, Goslee looks forward to “more time with family, and hopefully, travel to warm climates.”
