Clockwise: The 72 campers from across the state get together for a group photo. KEC delegates L-R: Blake Husted, Jessica Cinnamon, Shelby Sawyer and Colton Shultz are wrapping up camp . Shelby poses before she goes for a ride in a bucket truck. KEC delegates pose for the official cooperative picture. Blake Husted runs with the ball, as his team competes in a relay game.


While at the camp, the delegates attended sessions on energy, electrical safety and rural electric careers. They


elected their own Manager and Board of Directors and operated a Coke & Candy Cooperative. Other special activities of the four-day program included hands-on electrical demonstrations, such as pole-climbing and bucket truck rides from linemen, a 13 low-element ropes course, swimming, an energy battle tournament and a trip to Celebration Station for video games and go-carts. The “YouthPower Energy Camp” is coordinated by the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives and Kay Electric Cooperative. This year’s delegates for KEC were: Colton Shultz and Blake Husted both of Blackwell, Shelby Sawyer of Tonkawa and Jessica Cinnamon of Garber. The four winners were chosen after writing an essay about “Imagine a day without electric- ity.”

KEC Sends Lineman To Neighboring Coop To Help With May 24 Tornado Restoration

Kay Electric Linemen (photo on the right) L-R: Kemper Hill, Jim Rig- don, Jason Lenon, Clinton White and Heath Lambert along with other cooperatives and contractors from across the state joined togeth- er to support Cimarron Electric Cooperative during this difficult time. KEC crews worked primarily in the Cashion/Piedmont area restoring power and constructing new lines. KEC has been on the other side of this situation. Anytime we’re able to help, we will.


Cooperation Among Cooperatives


Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional, and international structures.
