Sheila Sage officially retires after 15 dedicated years with the OEL.
At a time when the OEL was going through a significant change, it was searching for someone who was smart, savvy, strong, collaborative, understanding and empathetic to join the team.
“We needed Wonder Woman!” said Dave Reid, past president of OEL and current president at Ontario Energy Network (OEN).
That was 15 years ago. Today, Sage leaves behind a legacy that included managing the needs of OELs chapters and its individual members, launching OELs first website, developing training programs, initiating the Electrical Awareness Month and introducing the League’s first Electrical Apprenticeship Scholarship program.
She has an unwavering commitment to her role and has always presented herself with dignity, professionalism and enthusiasm.
“She knew everything and everyone,” said Stephen Sell, OELs current president.
“She’s family and will truly be missed!” added Dave Ackinson, chair of OELs board of directors.
The entire OEL family thanks Sage for her part in growing the organization and wishes her all the best in her golden years.
