S

cott Pole Line, LLC is a family owned and operated company in Stephenville that has built a reputation of excellence in the linemen industry nationwide. Founded by Dan Scott, who grew up in the industry, Scott Pole Line is now operated by his sons, Michael and Jeff, who are part of our 40 Under 40 selections for 2018. The people at Scott Pole Line are among those who — when the rest of us are trying to avoid the effects of natural and human-made disasters – show up to help mitigate all kinds of

pole line emergencies. Both sons graduated from Tarleton State University — Michael with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and Jeff with Bachelor of Business Administration. “In our industry we are constantly training and refreshing our skills which include anything from transformer training, proper equipment operation, proper use and care of personal protective equipment, system protective devices, grounding procedures and traffic safety,” Jeff said. Michael adds, “We’re also certified in pole-top rescue, bucket rescue,

Asked about hobbies, Michael lists “family, golf, wood working, and anything outdoors.” Jeff’s a golfer too, but says he “loves family time, boating, all kinds of sports.” Michael is a member of the Haley

Burns Memorial Scholarship Committee. Jeff is on the advisory board for TSTC Waco campus for the Electrical Lineworker Technology and is also a member of Timber Ridge Church where he volunteers in Kid Ridge and Guest Connections. “We help with charity events that are local to Stephenville,” Jeff said. “I believe it’s important to support our own community and meet the needs of the people here in Erath county.” 29
