Youth Tour Visits Washington

PAYTON GARRISON and ARELY YANEZ were selected by Wheatland Electric to attend the 57th annual Electric Cooperative Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. From June 8 to 15, Garrison and Yanez joined more than 1,800 high school students nationwide to experience our nation’s capital, government and history.

This year’s delegation of 36 Kansas and four Hawaii youth began their trip with a banquet in Topeka, which featured Youth Tour alumni Rep. Kyle Hoff man, Rep. Steven Johnson and Chief Counsel for Gov. Sam Brownback Brant Laue. Following the banquet, Hoffman, Johnson and Laue led the Hawaii-Kansas delegates on a night tour of our state’s capitol.

After bucket truck rides, safety demonstrations and a co-op career panel questionnaire at FreeState Electric, Topeka, the group embarked on its way to Washington, D.C.
