LINDA STUNTZ ELECTED A DIRECTOR OF AMERICAN ELECTRIC POWER

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Linda Gillespie Stuntz, former U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) deputy secretary, was elected today to the board of directors of the American Electric Power Co., (NYSE: AEP) at its regular monthly meeting.
 Stuntz, a native Ohioan, has held various top-level positions at the DOE since May 1989, and is known for her strategic planning capability and expertise in environmental issues and fossil fuels. She was nominated to the position of deputy secretary in April 1992. She was previously an attorney with Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue in Washington, D.C. and a staff member for the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Energy and Commerce.
 "Linda Stuntz brings a thorough knowledge of energy issues and familiarity of the workings of Congress and the administration to our board," said Chairman and CEO Richard E. Disbrow. "Her Bellefontaine, Ohio roots are an added bonus."
 While at the Department of Energy, Stuntz was awarded the Secretary's Gold Medal in October 1990 "for outstanding dedication, professionalism and leadership in directing the Office of Policy, Planning and Analysis in the development of the National Energy Strategy, the development of the President's Clean Air Act Amendments, and in devising the mechanism to integrate a Department-wide strategic planning capability."
 Following graduation from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio with a B.A. in political science, Stuntz earned a law degree at Harvard Law School in 1979.
 She was associated with Jones, Day, Reavis and Pogue from 1979-81 and from 1987-89. She joined the staff of the Energy and Commerce Committee in 1981 as associate minority counsel. In 1986 she was named minority counsel and staff director.
 In 1989 Stuntz was appointed deputy under secretary for policy, planning and analysis and the DOE. She later served as acting assistant secretary for fossil energy and acting assistant secretary for domestic and international energy policy before becoming deputy secretary.
 She is a member of the District of Columbia Bar Association, the board of advisors for "Harvard Environmental Law Review," and a frequent speaker and writer on energy issues.
 Stuntz and her husband Reid have two children.
