MIDLAND, GA (WTVM) - April is Lineman Appreciation Month and Georgia Power celebrated by highlighting electrical safety careers as linemen for some students in the Columbus area.

Georgia Power hosted a special event Friday with 45 pre-k and kindergarten students at Emanuel Preparatory School of Math and Science of the Arts in Midland. The students learned about electrical safety, a day in the life of a lineman, and they also got the chance to try on the linemen's personal protective equipment.

Students even watched the Georgia Power bucket truck in action.

Not only were the students all smiles, the lineman were all smiles as the students surprised them with a welcome banner and thank-you cards.
