USDA check presentation

2010-01-26 - 2292 S Highway 27, Somerset, KY - Photo by Sharon Dodson. The Center photo. Jeff Jones, third from left, of the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Rural Development (USDA-RD), presents a check in the amount of $1.1 million for construction of a Network Operations Center (NOC) at The Center for Rural Development in Somerset. Accepting the check are, from left, Allen Anderson, CEO of South Kentucky Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation (SKRECC); U.S. Congressman Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05); Jones, and Lonnie Lawson, president and CEO of The Center. The funds were awarded in a loan-grant package that allowed The Center to relocate the NOC from the Valley Oak Technology Park in eastern Pulaski County to its new home in a 2,900-square-foot renovated area on the second floor of the facility. Jones presented the check January 25, 2010, at the official ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony for the NOC. Total cost of the project was $1.2 million.
