Escambia River Electric Cooperative, Inc. took ten juniors from its service area to Tallahassee, Florida, on February 13-14 to learn more about their state legislature and electric cooperatives.  Participants included Garrett Peirce from Central High School; Kayne Caraway, Kayla Flowers, Dakota Mack, Chassity McCranie, Tate Upton and Dylan Wolfe from Jay High School; Taylor Brook, Shelena Dukes and Victoria Wright from Northview High School.


While in Tallahassee, the students met with other high school juniors from electric cooperatives throughout the state of Florida.  Approximately 120 students participated in this year’s Youth Tour event.  EREC delegates enjoyed visiting the ChallengerMuseum and viewing the IMAX movie, Space Junk (3D).  Youth Tour participants participated in mock sessions in the Florida Supreme Court and in the House Chambers where various members of the legislature addressed the group.


The Youth Tour program provides students an opportunity to learn more about their state government and electric cooperatives and also gives them a chance to interact with other students from co-ops throughout the state.  It was a great educational experience and a lot of fun for the entire group
