The 2014 Frankfort Youth Tour was held April 21-22. This event is sponsored by Tri-County Electric and the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives. Six high school juniors were chosen to attend the tour based on their interests in government and their strong leadership abilities. They were among over 100 students who participated in this informative experience. The day’s activities included a tour of the Kentucky Governor’s Mansion, the state Capitol and the Kentucky Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial.
“These students will soon be our community leaders and electric cooperative member-owners,” said Paul Thompson, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Tri-County Electric. “We want them to see what makes their electric cooperative special, appreciate all their co-op provides for their communities and understand why it was so important to form electric co-ops in the first place.”
