Local Students Selected For Washington Youth Tour

February 28, 2018

Three area high school students have been selected to represent Escambia River Cooperative on 2018 Washington Youth Tour in June. They are Lydia Smith from Northview High, Gabby Chavers from Central High and Bryce Cook from Jay High.

Judges from PowerSouth Energy Cooperative in Andalusia, AL, and Southern Pine Electric Cooperative in Brewton, AL, scored contestants in their interviews based on their knowledge of Escambia River Electric Cooperative and the history of rural electrification.  Personal attributes of each candidate such as character, academic ability, personality and leadership skills were also considered.

The students will also have the chance learn about the nation’s capital, rural electrification and more.
