Local Students Head To Washington For Youth Tour

June 28, 2019

Three local students took part in the Washington Youth Tour.

Keaton Brown of Northview High School, Hannah Morris of Jay High School and Kylie Schwarz of Central High School joined more than 1,800 youth leaders representing electric cooperatives from across the country for a weeklong tour of the nation’s capital.

Highlights of the tour for delegates included the World War II, Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, Martin Luther King, Jr. and FDR memorials; Arlington National Cemetery; Holocaust Museum; and visiting many other places of interest in Washington

Youth Tour delegates also met with Congressman Matt Gaetz and visited the U.S. Capitol, where they learned more about how government works. During the Rural Electric Youth Program, they were able to gain a better understanding of rural electric cooperatives’ history and their importance in the communities they serve.
