ERC welcomes Justen Casey

The ERC is pleased to welcome Justen Casey as its newest team member. Justen came to the ERC as an intern via Dr. MaryLynn Manns of UNC Asheville. After working with the ERC for several months, and having valued his contributions to the team, the decision was made to extend an offer and to our delight, Mr. Casey accepted.


This is a community

The ERC is very thankful. And, it’s not to do with this time of year. We are thankful for each of you – our customers, our partners, our vendors, our subcontractors, our advisors, our friends. By working with us, each of you help us succeed. The ERC has long touted itself as a community network. Like the Internet, ERC Broadband is comprised of all our connections throughout communities across western North Carolina. Each connection we make, each extension of the network infrastructure, each new drop enables us to serve you – the communities in which we work – better.

For this and so much more, please accept this brief note as a heartfelt ‘thank you’.
