(BEDFORD) - Duke Energy honored Bedford Chamber of Commerce President Jamie Medlock with a "Difference Maker" award at the Aug. 30 Indianapolis Indians game in Indianapolis.
"As Indiana's largest electric supplier, we have the privilege of working with a number of community leaders statewide," said Bruce Calloway, Duke Energy's southwest district community relations manager. "We're honoring one of those leaders, Jamie Medlock, with the Duke Energy Difference Maker award for her work bettering lives in our community."
Medlock has helped secure nearly $20 million in investments for Bedford's downtown revitalization. She was also a key player in the process that landed Bedford the prestigious 2013 "Community of the Year" award from the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
Prior to moving back to Bedford, Medlock held numerous positions at the Indiana Statehouse, culminating her government career as senior policy director for then-Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman. She is a graduate of Indiana University with bachelor's degrees in journalism, political science and American studies.
Duke Energy Indiana's operations provide about 7,500 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 800,000 customers in a 23,000-square-mile service area, making it the state's largest electric supplier.
