FARGO, N.D. — Border States Electric (BSE) donated $1,000 to the National Sisterhood United for Journeymen Linemen (NSUJL) in recognition and support of National Lineman Appreciation Day.

Since the invention of the telegraph, line men and women have worked tirelessly, sacrificed their lives and had to be away from family to construct and maintain the energy infrastructure of the United States. National Lineman Appreciation Day honors their dangerous and challenging work and salutes their contributions to keep the country's power on.

In conjunction with National Lineman Appreciation Day, BSE has partnered with Northwest Lineman College and Alan Drew to give away 10 autographed copies of "The American Lineman," a book honoring the evolution and importance of one of the nation's toughest, most admired professions.
