Brown and Adams Attend Cooperative Leadership Camp


Kay Electric sent two area students to Steamboat Springs, Colo., in July for a week-long leadership camp. Kari Adams and Taylor Brown joined teens from throughout Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Wyoming for the


Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp July 9-15. Adams and Brown were selected from a group of high school applicants. To win this trip, students prepared


essays and then presented their essays in speech form at the cooperative’s Youth Tour Banquet. “KEC is proud to participate in the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp and send our youth to develop essential


leadership and teamwork skills,” said Joe Harris, KEC General Manager. “Through this trip, we hope the students gain some awareness of how our electric cooperatives work and how important it is for the youth to be involved in our community.” During the trip, the students developed a candy “co-


operative” of their own, complete with a manager and a board of trustees. The campers took part in legislative presentations, a light and high voltage display and a com- petition to build a transmission line. They took a raft- ing trip, as well as a visit to Steamboat Springs, Trapper Mine, and Craig Power Plant. “The students are judged on the basis of academic


achievements, activities, positive attitudes and their overall abilities as leaders,” Shana Holsteen, Kansas Electric Cooperatives Director of Communications said. “During the week they learned new leadership and teamwork skills, and about the work of their electrical cooperatives.” KEC sponsors the trip of two students each year.


“I enjoyed the opportunity to become a better leader. I also liked water rafting and dances, because it gave me the chance to interact with other campers and make memories.” – Kari Adams


“The one thing at this camp that had the biggest impact on me would have to be the people I met. I will stay in contact with them and will see them in the future.” – Taylor Brown
