Three local students were among more than 1,500 high school students visiting Washing- ton, D.C. in June for the 2011 Washington Youth Tour, sponsored by Lake Region Elec- tric Cooperative (LREC) along with hundreds of other electric cooperatives across Oklaho- ma and the country. Alexandra Keener of Hul- bert, daughter of Wayne and Juanita Keener; Brendan Francis of Tahlequah, son of Dion and Shannon Francis; and Amanda Fehringer of Broken Arrow , daughter of Ronda Fehring- er, joined 71 other Oklahoma students for this great educational event. “LREC is proud to offer these extraordinary students the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C.,” said Glen Clark, LREC Youth Tour Co- ordinator. “The Youth Tour provides a great way for our future leaders to learn about gov- ernment and electric cooperatives. By invest- ing in these students, we believe we are invest- ing in the future of our communities.” LREC has sponsored the Washington Youth Tour for more than 40 years. The trip is de-

signed to educate students about our nation’s capi- tal, the sacrifices made for our freedom and the val- ue of the cooperative way of business. The students return home with a greater appreciation of our na- tion’s leaders, a respect for the beauty of Washing- ton, D.C., and friendships that will last a lifetime. “In my opinion, one valuable part of the trip was the Holocaust Museum, it changed my outlook on life altogether in no more than two hours,” said Brendan Francis. Applications for the 2012 Youth Tour will be available in January 2012, on LREC’s website at www.lrecok.coop, at the LREC office, or by calling (918) 772-2526.
