2020 Farmers RECC Washington Youth Tour Students Recognized

Each year, Farmers RECC sends four area high school juniors on an all-expense paid trip to Frankfort and Washington, D.C. as part of the Rural Electric “Government in Action” Youth Tour. Winners travel to Frankfort, Kentucky to visit the state capitol in the spring and to Washington, D.C. in June.

Kentucky is one of the 45 states to send a youth delegation to the annual electric cooperative youth tour. Since 1964, the nation’s electric cooperatives have collectively organized trips for more than 40,000 high school juniors and seniors to visit U.S. congressional members, energy and grassroots government education sessions and go sightseeing in Washington, D.C.  

The recipients of the 2020 Washington Youth Tour were: Mattie Coomer of Cave City, daughter of Jason and Sarah Coomer; Briley Burks of Glasgow, daughter of Brian and Oleva Burks; Ethan Chenoweth of Cub Run, son of Burke and Traci Chenoweth; and Claire Wilson of Edmonton, daughter of Amy and Jason Neighbors and Chris and Misty Wilson. 

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional Washington Youth Tour trip had to be cancelled. In an effort to still reward those students, Farmers RECC made the decision to award a scholarship to each student for their Fall 2021 semester.  

Scholarships will be used for tuition, fees, campus housing, textbooks, and other supplies directly related to the recipient’s education. Scholarships will be paid to the accredited college, university, technical college or trade school of the students’ choice.

Farmers RECC was formed in 1938 and is owned by the members they serve.   Farmers provides electric service to over 25,000 services, in eight Kentucky counties. Today more than 900 electric cooperatives provide reliable and technologically advanced service to 40 million Americans while maintaining a member-focused approach to business.
