Hoeschele and Pfaff attend youth tour in Washington, DC
“Thank you so much for investing in our future,” stated MacKenzie Hoeschele and Beth Pfaff to the Jackson Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors at the board’s regular monthly meeting in July. MacKenzie and Beth were among 1,600 high school students who attended the Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C., in June. Because both
girls participate in Jackson Electric’s Youth Ambassador Program, they were selected through an application process to represent the co-op on the tour. While on the tour, MacKenzie and Beth had an opportunity to meet with Congressman Ron Kind and Senator Tammy Baldwin.
To experience the Electric Youth Tour, students are required to participate in Jackson Electric Cooperative’s Youth Ambassador Program. Open to area high school juniors and seniors, this program teaches students about cooperative principles, values and operations; cooperative careers; leadership and teamwork skills.
