Washington Youth Tour 2019
Hannah Morris of Jay High School, Keaton Brown of Northview High School and Kylie Schwarz of Central High School joined more than 1,800 youth leaders representing co-ops from throughout the country for a weeklong tour of the nation’s capital as Washington Youth Tour delegates.
Highlights included the World War II, Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, Martin Luther King, Jr. and FDR memorials; Arlington National Cemetery; Holocaust Museum; and visiting many other places of interest in Washington, D.C.
Youth Tour delegates also met with Congressman Matt Gaetz and visited the U.S. Capitol, where they learned more about how government works. During the Rural Electric Youth Program, they gained a better understanding of rural electric cooperatives’ history and their importance in the communities they serve.
The Youth Tour was an experience of a lifetime, and a trip Hannah, Keaton and Kylie say they will never forget.
