J. Ranck Electric employee Chris Dice hoists his son Henry into the air to get a better view during Saturday’s Central Michigan University football game against Syracuse University at Kelly Shorts Stadium in Mt. Pleasant. JRE sponsored the game as part of CMU’s Celebrate Energy Weekend and invited employees and their families to join them in the day’s celebration.


Central Michigan University’s Celebrate Energy Weekend was designed to bring awareness to the energy industry in Michigan by partnering with sponsor businesses such as J. Ranck Electric within the energy industry. JRE employees and their families came out to cheer on the Central Michigan University Chippewas and celebrate energy at the CMU vs. Syracuse game in Mt. Pleasant on Saturday, September 13. Fans in the Kelly/Shorts stadium saw the JRE logo scrolling on the scoreboard and the JRE solar semitrailer parked nearby, while those listening to the game on the radio heard JRE’s Scott Walker on the CMU Sports Radio Network.
