Did you join the Youth Tour to Washington?

Fifty years ago, the Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., hosted its first group of high school students to learn about electric cooperatives, as well as U.S. government and history. North Carolina cooperatives have sent more than 1,600 students throughout the years, some who remain close to home and others who have scattered throughout the country.

If you have represented a cooperative on the Tour, join other alumni in a listing compiled by the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives. Add what you've been up to since the Youth Tour — your education, your career, your location and your favorite memories of that week spent in D.C.

The database of Youth Tour alumni is being put together at www.ncelectriccooperatives.com/youthtour
