Morrison Elementary fifth- and sixth-grade students were offered a hair-raising experience Wednesday morning thanks to Caney Fork Electric.“You have to get their attention and keep it,” said John Chisam, director of member services at Caney Fork Electric. “I know electricity can be boring, so it’s important for me to be entertaining.”To bring children to the edge of their seats and laughing hysterically he, along with co-workers Vicki King, Mike Jones and Kyle Frazier, brought a machine to demonstrate the power of electricity using static electricity as part of the presentation. Numerous children were allowed to place their hand on the machine for the hair-rising experience.
