Sheets’ officiating experience includes decades of state tournament contests, as well as working at the state championship final level.

Sheets currently serves as senior vice president of RushShelby Energy, an electric cooperative serving consumers in nine east central Indiana counties. His responsibilities include education, customer service, advertising, legislative and communications work. As editor of the monthly company newsletter ELECTRAWATT, Sheets leads a team that has been honored with numerous national communications and publications awards.

Among his professional recognitions, Sheets earned the designation of Certified Rural Electric Communicator from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and Master Cooperative Communicator from the Cooperative Communicators Association.

During his career, Sheets have been involved with local radio, television and newspaper work, as well as being a partner in a public relations firm serving many national agricultural firms. He resides in Shelbyville with his wife Susan, and counts golf, travel and reading among his hobbies.
