Jim Rauner Says Farewell After 41 Years
On September 8, 2021, Jim Rauner said farewell to his coworkers and the customers he has served while working at Norris Public Power District since 1980. Jim retired from the District after 41 years of dedicated service.
Jim began his employment with the District on August 25, 1980, as an Apprentice Lineman at the District’s Service Center located in Hebron and remained at the Hebron location his entire career. Jim was promoted to Equipment Operator – Lineman in 1982, Chief Area Serviceman in 1984, Construction Supervisor in 1986 and Area Supervisor in 2016.
“I am thankful to Norris for giving me the opportunity to have a career in the electric industry. I have been fortunate to have been able to work for and with so many good people. It has been a very rewarding experience and I am proud of what we have accomplished together.
There have been many changes since I started. The technology is advancing so fast, that it is hard to keep pace. Over the years, the District has provided employees with excellent equipment, tools, trucks and facilities to work in.
I have truly enjoyed working with Norris customers over the past 41 years. Now, I’m excited to spend more time with Mary, our kids and grandkids. They truly all provide a lot of enjoyment. I am also happy to have more time to golf and fish.”
CongratulationsJim!Norriswishes you and Mary much happiness as you begin a new chapter in your lives. Your knowledge and presence, in the office and on jobsites, will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to work with you.
 Jim and his wife, Mary, reside in Hebron. Their children are Justin and Diane Rauner and Sarah (Rauner) and Thomas Martin. They have six grandchildren who keep them busy attending a variety of activities.
