Electric cooperatives inspire students at Northeast Ag Expo
Approximately 1,300 high school students in November learned about the opportunities and economic impact of North Carolina agriculture — and local electric cooperatives — at the 2015 Northeast Ag Expo.
Students from seven counties attended the Williamston event to learn how the farming industry is changing and about the many agriculture-related employment options that exist.
Staff at Tideland EMC and Edgecombe-Martin County EMC attended the expo to share information with students about electric cooperatives. Both co-ops, along with Roanoke Electric Cooperative, served as event sponsors.
Employees from Four County EMC captured attention with hot line demonstrations, and Tideland EMC debuted its new “selfie station.”
