Fresh out of the Seabees,
I sought out some top-flight
engineers who knew their
disciplines, and would share their
knowledge. And weren't afraid to
see newcomers take hold and
become project leaders.
I found what I wanted here at
Duke Power, so I became a
But what looked like a learning
experience has turned into a career,
with a lot of responsibility Like in
1963, when I helped build Cowans
Ford Dam, to provide additional

hydro generation for our system
and impound Lake Norman, with
its 550-mile shoreline. It's the
cooling pond for Plant Marshall,
our world-beating, high-efficiency
coal-fired steam station. And for
McGuire Nuclear Station, being
prepared now to go on-line.
You can discover career
excitement here, too. With
competitive salaries, great
benefits, a fine cultural calendar
and continuing education
opportunities at major colleges and
universities nearby. And

year-round golf'and tennis. Or
fishing for the big ones (in Lake
Norman, of course).
