This summer, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives sent 45 exceptional high schoolers to represent their communities in Washington D.C. on the 2019 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. This year Four County EMC sponsored one rising senior on a week-long trip to the nation’s Capital.

From June 15-21, the North Carolina delegates joined more than 1,800 students from across the country to explore historic monuments and museums, meet elected officials at the U.S. Capitol, participate in networking events, and learn about our nation’s history and the importance of civic engagement. The tourists also experienced the cooperative difference first hand by running their own snack and beverage co-op for the duration of the trip.

Brice Miller, a rising senior at Pender High School, represented Four County EMC on this year’s trip. Brice earned the opportunity to attend after being voted the most outstanding leader by his peers at Youth Leadership Weekend, which was held at Camp Kirkwood in March.

The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., is a tradition more than 50 years strong. The tour is hosted annually by electric cooperatives nationwide and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
