Rebecca Boutwell and Zipporah Harris Win Washington Youth Tour
Posted on March 3, 2016
Congratulations to Rebecca Boutwell of Jay High School and Zipporah Harris of Northview High School for winning the 2016 Washington Youth Tour contest. Area students interviewed with a panel of judges for a chance to win this great opportunity provided by Escambia River Electric Cooperative. Judges from PowerSouth Energy Cooperative in Andalusia, Alabama, and Southern Pine Electric Cooperative in Brewton, Alabama, scored contestants based on their knowledge of EREC and the history of rural electrification. Personal attributes of each candidate such as character, academic ability, personality and leadership skills also were considered. While representing EREC in Washington in June, Rebecca and Zipporah will have the opportunity to see the sights, learn about our nation’s capital and rural electrification, and meet many new friends. EREC is proud to have these two outstanding students represent the co-op on the Washington Youth Tour this year. Congratulations to each of them on achieving this honor.
