Eighteen North Carolina electric cooperatives in June sponsored 31 rising high school seniors on the annual Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. In addition to learning about cooperatives and forming their own, the participants toured the U.S. Capitol (shown), and visited their Congressional representatives, Arlington National Cemetery and other Washington area sites.
