Broadband Expansion Important to Missouri


by Sean J. Vanslyke -

It has been an incredible month at SEMO Electric Cooperative and GoSEMO Fiber. We delivered 720 summer meals for children, we surpassed 4,300 high-speed fiber Internet installations, we mailed checks totaling $73,000 to help 105 students attend trade school or college, we hosted our first drive-thru annual meeting and we had Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt visit our office. All of these things despite COVID-19. Team SEMO keeps pushing forward.

Strange, Stranger and Pushing Forward


It’s strange how life can change so quickly. What’s stranger is how life can change so quickly for all us at the same time. The past three months have proven we are capable of making real-time adjustments to our daily lives.

COVID-19 has changed our lives. Hopefully, we are closer to our family, our friends and our co-workers. Hopefully, we might have more respect for each other’s plight in life. As my friend George Stuteville said, “Perhaps it may be that separation will cause us to know each other better and appreciate each other’s abilities.”
