Chris Leonhardt Pays It Forward

Apprentice Lineman Chris Leonhardt, pictured here with his 8 month old daughter, chose to pay forward $500 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Laurens Electric Cooperative’s January recipient of the employee Pay it Forward funds is Apprentice Lineman Chris Leonhardt.

Chris chose to donate the entire $500 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.

“I have a soft spot for children, and St. Jude’s has a good reputation for helping kids,” Chris said.

“These funds can help a sick child get the medical treatment he or she needs,” he added. Thinking of his own 8 month old daughter, Chris added, “These kids should have their whole lives ahead of them, and I want them to have a future.”
