Youth Tour 2019 Scrapbook
Photos from the 2019 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour
This summer, 45 students representing 24 of North Carolina’s electric co-ops traveled to Washington, D.C., on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour — the 52nd year NC co-ops have sponsored such a trip. Visit the NC Electric Cooperatives web site for more information about the program.
Piedmont Electric Member to Represent NC
Karis Dean, a 2019 youth tour participant sponsored by Piedmont Electric, was selected by fellow Youth Tourists to represent our state 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 and attend the 2020 NRECA Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
Karis is a 2019 graduate from Chapel Hill High School with plans to attend NC State University this fall to study international business, international relations and Spanish. When she’s not scooping up national champion jump roping titles, she’s mentoring students in the classroom and out on the jump rope court.
