Jan Harlow became a resident of Tippecanoe County after meeting her husband while she was a student at Purdue. They raised their four children on their family farm, where she still lives and manages the farm.
During her two terms on the board, Harlow earned Director Gold — the highest certification awarded through the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).
Harlow first retired from the City of West Lafayette, where she served as the financial manager of the city’s utility for 19 years. She then retired again from Huntington Bank, where she served for nine years as a customer service representative.
Following her retirement from Huntington Bank, Harlow was elected State President of Indiana Extension Homemakers. For three years, she traveled the state of Indiana to connect with families and learn more about their concerns, needs and goals while rearing their families. Harlow also served on the Riley Children’s Hospital Cheer Guild Board, the Tippecanoe County Extension Board, and her church administration board.
As the only woman to ever be elected to Tipmont’s Board of Directors, I have learned so much from the six long-term, knowledgeable men with whom I serve. Their information and support have helped me in making some significant decisions during that time. My goal as your District 2 Director is to make certain we are providing the best, most cost-effective and essential services to our members. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve you.
