Around The Co-op

Mel Nagel

After 42 years of working long days and nights in some of North Dakota’s most unforgiving weather, Mel Nagel, crew foreman with the Hillsboro crew, is retiring.

Mel began his employment with Nodak Electric in May of 1981. A graduate of Bismarck Junior College’s (now called Bismarck State College) electrical lineman course, he began his career as a lineman at Nodak’s Hillsboro outpost location. He was promoted to Hillsboro crew foreman in 2001, a position he held until his retirement.

Mel is well-liked and respected by fellow employees and members throughout the area because of his willingness to help and his dedication to get the job done. Mel plans to enjoy every day of retirement by traveling and spending more time with family.

Nodak Electric thanks Mel for his 42 years of dedication and service and wishes him all the best in his retirement!
