The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce has named Mike Swope, Entergy Service Foreman, Employee of the Month for September. Mike was presented his award, sponsored by Sabine River Ford, by chamber board member Johnny Trahan at the September Networking Coffee hosted by Fresh Prep. Mike received gifts and gift certificates from several local merchants.

Johnny Trahan, Customer Service Manager for Entergy, said, “Mike has been with Entergy over 35 years.  Mike is the one that makes everything happen. He takes customer service very seriously and is always looking to find a way to serve the customer better. During Rita and Ike, Mike was instrumental in restoring power in the Bridge City Area, as he is in every storm. Mike has been at Entergy for more than 35 years and is always willing to respond when customers have special request. Mike is more than deserving of employee of the month.”
