“I am pleased with the opportunity to serve as Plant Hatch site vice president as we continue our mission of sustaining high levels of plant performance and community service,” said Vineyard. “Our top priority is the safety and health of the public and our employees, and I appreciate the support of the Plant Hatch community.”

Prior to his work at Plant Hatch, Vineyard served as the fleet operations manager at the Southern Nuclear headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., where he functioned as the governance and oversight authority for all nuclear plant operations.

Vineyard joined Southern Company in 1985 at Plant Vogtle near Waynesboro, Ga., after serving eight years in the U.S. Navy submarine force. He holds a degree in computer science from Augusta State University and completed post graduate work in computer engineering at North Carolina State University. He has maintained a senior reactor operator’s license at Vogtle for 23 years.

Vineyard and his wife, Beverly, live in Vidalia. They have twin sons, Andrew and Matthew, both employed with Southern Nuclear and stationed at Plant Vogtle.

He moved to the corporate headquarters and worked in strategic analysis. He returns to Plant Hatch after most recently serving at Plant Vogtle 3 and 4 as the operations director, then as the initial test program director.

 “I am excited to return to Plant Hatch, where I served for most of my career,” said Spring. “Rejoining the Plant Hatch team feels like I’m returning home, and my family and I are glad to be back in this warm and welcoming community.”

Spring, from Sylvester, Ga., attended Mercer University in Macon, where he met his wife, Lynn, and earned a degree in electrical engineering. Spring and his wife have two daughters – Samantha, 11, and Alexa, 10 – who will be transferring to Vidalia Heritage Academy at the end of the school year.
