Students Selected to Represent EREC in Washington this June

Congratulations to Gabby Chavers — Central High, Bryce Cook – Jay High and Lydia Smith – Northview High, for winning the 2018 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, Gabby, Bryce and Lydia 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 three outstanding students represent the co-op on the Washington Youth Tour this year.  Congratulations to each of them on achieving this honor.
