​NEWARK, Del. (April 5, 2019) – Delmarva Power honored five top volunteers at the company's Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony, which recognized employees who go above and beyond to make a difference in their communities through volunteerism. 

"We consider it our responsibility and privilege to help enhance the quality of life for people in the communities where we live, work, and serve," said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power region president. "We are extremely proud of our volunteers of the year, and all our employee volunteers, who embody our company's commitment to service both in their day-to-day work at Delmarva Power and in their spare time helping our community partners achieve their missions."

Richard Davis, of Bel Air, Md., a senior district system operator with Delmarva Power, was recognized as the company's most impactful volunteer in 2018.
