Congratulations to Roman Ferrer-Diaz, a sophomore at Randolph Early College High School, who was recently selected to represent Randolph Electric Membership Corporation as the Rural Electric Youth Tour Delegate in Washington, D.C., June 9-15, 2018.
Roman was selected to be Randolph Electric’s delegate for the Rural Electric Youth Tour based on his community involvement, academic success and his knowledge about REMC’s cooperative business model. Roman is the son of Amber and Roger Pack of Franklinville, N.C., who are proud member-owners of Randolph Electric.
“Once I was awarded the opportunity of serving as Randolph EMC’s Rural Electric Youth Tourist, I was immediately excited and honored to represent my community and the cooperative,” Roman noted. “I look forward to visiting Washington, D.C., this summer, meeting new people, gaining communication skills and seeing all the major historical attractions.”
Roman will join more than 1,500 high school students from across the country to learn about cooperatives, the rural electric program, U.S. history, government and democracy. He will meet with congressional leaders on Capitol Hill and tour various national monuments and museums throughout the weeklong program.
“As a rural electric cooperative, Randolph Electric is passionate about supporting community and youth leadership opportunities,” said Kathleen Duckworth, Communication and Outreach Specialist at Randolph EMC. “We are proud to have Roman represent us in Washington, D.C., and we look forward to watching him grow and learn through this wonderful experience.”
