CEO VIEW BY JACK L. PERKINS


Juniors win youth trips BY ERIN MOORE, Member Relations Specialist


Part of our cooperative’s vision is to deliver safe and reliable electric service at the lowest price allowed by good management practices. This has always been true but we don’t often talk about what we’re doing to deliver on it.


At Tri-County Electric, our vision means more than words on a page. This year promises to be one that proves our commitment to quality, safe and reliable electric service.


We have projected some major system upgrades and maintenance projects for 2013. While we continue to work on analysis and budget amounts, we plan to invest signifi cant dollars to ensure our members receive the quality service they expect and deserve.

During the evening hours of Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012, nervous high school juniors fi lled the lobby of the Holiday Day Inn Express in Guymon. The juniors were invited to interview for Tri-County Electric Cooperative’s youth trips. After an evening of interviews, the cooperative awarded seven students with trips.


Only juniors in high school were invited to apply for the trips and the cooperative received a record number of applications, setting the stage for a night of competition. Students were interviewed about their cooperative knowledge, their ability to communicate their ideas effectively, as well as their written application and resume. The cooperative was looking for students who emulate Touchstone Energy’s four cooperative principles: accountability, integrity, innovation, and commitment to


community. Three judges were brought in from other cooperatives from Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma who were tasked with interviewing the pool of applicants and selecting the winners. Winners were:


Youth Tour, Washington, D.C. • Alexander Zakrzewicz of Guymon • Jordan McFarland of Hooker • Alondra Bustamante of Beaver


Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp, Steamboat Springs, Colo. • Skylar Behne of Guymon • Ramee Aranda of rural Keyes


Co-op Student Leadership Summit, Oklahoma City, Okla. • Trae Pugh of Beaver • Kaitlyn King of Forgan
