This morning, we celebrated a huge milestone for our employee, Randy Teague – 40 years with Blackfoot! 🎉 If you live around the Seeley Lake area, you probably know Randy as the friendly face of Blackfoot. During his time with the company, Randy has seen the birth of the Internet; our services advance from analog, to digital, to fiber optic; and Blackfoot grow from a rural telephone provider to a regional technology leader. Even more special, Randy’s family helped found Blackf...oot in 1954.
As Randy put it: “My grandfather was one of the founding fathers of this company and I’ve been involved with it in some way since I was a baby. My dad used to take me when he was out working on the lines for the phone company. I actually got my first check from Blackfoot when I was in the 5th grade, helping repair phones. So I’ve actually been around longer than the official 40 years. I still have that original check stub and I’ve worked for Blackfoot every single year since then. It’s more than just a job. The company means a lot to me. And so do the people! I like my job, I like the people and what we’re doing – the future is going to be great.” 😁 Congratulations, Randy!
It's snow big deal! Check out this pic of Blackfoot's central office in Eastern Idaho, buried under a blanket of fresh snow. Shout out to our technicians who go the extra mile to keep our customers connected, even if it means removing several feet of snow! #ConnectToMore
