Tennessee811 Magazine recently honored Allyson Horner as their Damage Prevention MVP. Horner is the general manager at Gibson County Utility District (GCUD). She has been with the gas company for more than 21 years and in September celebrated her one-year anniversary in the general manager role. She started with GCUD in 2000 as an accounting clerk and worked her way up to the role of chief financial officer prior to being named general manager.

The GCUD employees have bought into Allyson’s positive energy and leadership style. “We have a lot of fun around here, but we have a product that can be dangerous,” Allyson said. “When it’s time to go to work, we go to work and get the job done.”

In May of 2021, Allyson took the lead on creating a successful safety day in Gibson County. The event, called “811 in 731” was held at the Gibson County Fairgrounds in September with more than 300 in attendance, providing more than $3,000 in door prizes. Though the event was a collaborative effort, it would not have happened without Allyson’s ownership of the project.
