Students join ECE for D.C. tour

Two local students were among nearly 2,000 high schoolers who participated in the 2019 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., June 14-20. Delegates sponsored by East Central Energy (ECE) were Abby Larsen of Milaca and Gavyn Jensen-Schneider of North Branch.  The seven-day trip included visits to Arlington National Cemetery and the White House. Students had the opportunity to visit with representatives from their congressional districts and address their concerns directly with legislators.

“We got to talk and share some of our own concerns with our state representatives face to face,” said Larsen of her experience. “We even got to thank them for the work that they have done to help rural cooperatives.”
