Congratulations to Demian Cook, Business Center Analyst, for being named the September recipient of Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference award!

Demian started at Socket in 2012 as a Business Center Analyst, and is now a Tier II with the department.  In her current role, Cook helps business customers with any service issues, as well as helping serve as a resource for her fellow agents.

Congratulations to James Hicks, Business Technical Support Agent, for being named the August recipient of Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference award!

James has now won this award three times since starting at Socket in 2011.

Each time, he’s been lauded for his exemplary dedication to fixing any problem that comes across his desk – from customers’ technical issues to helping his coworkers stay positive (often with his drawer full of candy).

Socket was happy to be a part of the Millersburg Community Parade and Celebration on Saturday! It was a perfect day to celebrate the town, which is located west of Fulton and is one of the areas to benefit from Socket's fiber-to-the-home network.

The parade, which traveled from the Millersburg Christian Church all the way to the Lions Club, included tractors, pedal bikes, classic cars, and our own Socket van (with plenty of candy, of course). Afterwards, the Celebration had everything from reenacting old west gun fights to classic balloon popping games. We even brought some balloons ourselves.
