Central Electric Cooperative awards Washington trip to local student

Each year, Central Electric Cooperative sponsors up to eight area high school juniors to attend the National Rural Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C in June.

One of this year’s recipients is Renee Farmer of Letcher, daughter of Paul and Marci Farmer.

These representatives will join more than 1,500 students from across the country to tour Washington, D.C. They will meet with South Dakota’s Congressional Delegation and have the opportunity to watch history come alive as they explore the museums, memorials and monuments.

Central Electric sponsors the trip to support our local youth as tomorrow’s leaders and community members. One recipient from each director district may be selected based on an essay submission.

Central Electric Cooperative is a Touchstone Energy® Cooperative and provides electric power to Aurora, Brule, Buffalo, Davison, Hanson, Jerauld, Miner and Sanborn counties in South Dakota. Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives are dedicated to building our communities and improving our way of life.
