Scrapbook: Youth Tour 2017
Photos and video from the 2017 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour
North Carolina’s electric cooperatives sent 50 young leaders and advisors to Washington, D.C., in June on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, marking the 50th year for the program in North Carolina (see “The Leaders of Our Future,” June 2017). You can also visit NC Electric Cooperative's website for more information about the program.
EnergyUnited Member to Represent NC
Youth Tour participants have returned home with new friendships and memories from the trip, but the journey is just beginning for Chetan Singalreddy, a member of EnergyUnited and a rising senior at South Iredell High School in Statesville. Singalreddy was selected by his peers to represent North Carolina on the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s (NRECA) Youth Leadership Council (YLC). One student from each state is selected to participate in a national leadership workshop, as well as represent their state at the NRECA’s 2018 Annual Meeting in Nashville.
