Colorado students boarded a bus from United Power on Friday, June 14 to join nearly 2,000 other high school students for the 2019 Youth Leadership Tour in Washington D.C.
Each year, United Power selects three ambitious high school students to represent the co-op at the Youth Tour. This year, United Power sponsored Catera Gagna, Brighton High School, Bethany Flanagan, Weld Central High School, and Brooklyn Stubby, Mapleton Early College.
Students will have an opportunity to meet with elected officials, tour Washington D.C. landmarks and learn the value of the cooperatives they represent. Applications to represent the cooperative during next year’s tour will be available in December.
