There are two essay topic options to choose from. Please answer only one question:

1. Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) was the founding father of Pedernales Electric Cooperative and played a major role in bringing electricity to the Texas Hill Country, providing an improved way of life for citizens and communities. Imagine if LBJ lived in today's digital age of social media and how this act could have "gone viral" using technology.

What act, invention, or development would you create to do good for your community and "go viral"?


2. A first responder is a person with focused training who is among the first to arrive and help at the scene of an emergency. Law enforcement officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and firefighters are typically labeled as first responders. Based on your knowledge and research of the linework career, should lineworkers be considered first responders? Why or why not?
