August, 2015 www.harmonelectric.com CRABB and SMITH ATTEND HARMON ELECTRIC SPONSORED YOUTH TOUR M’Kyla Crabb and Tayler Smith both of Hollis


recently returned home following an eventful, fun- packed week in Washington, D.C. Crabb, daughter of Larry & Donna Crabb and Smith, daughter of David & Lavinda Smith were the winners of the 2015 Rural Electric Cooperative “Youth Tour Contest”, sponsored by Harmon Electric Association in Hollis, Oklahoma. They were among the approximately 1,500 high school students from across the country who participated in the Rural Electric Youth Tour.


The 52nd Annual Rural Electric Cooperative Youth


Tour began June 12, 2015 with a “Get Acquainted Banquet” in Oklahoma City. The 69 young winners, representing twenty-fi ve of the state’s rural electric systems, departed for the nation’s Capitol the next morning.


“In my opinion, the most exciting part of the trip


was when we got to go on a private tour of the Capitol and sit in the House of Chambers,” said Tayler. “I also enjoyed visiting the Washington Monument, Ford’s Theatre, Smithsonian, Lincoln Memorial and the White House”. M’Kyla added, “The most exciting part of the trip to me was the fact that I was in D.C. seeing so many things that I had only read about and seen in books. I was in awe that I was actually seeing things I had studied in American History this past year. Another highlight would defi nitely be the amazing people that I shared this experience with.”


In addition to seeing all the historical monuments and taking photos of the White House, the Oklahoma winners toured the U.S. Capitol, The U.S. Holocaust Museum, The Pentagon, Ford’s Theatre, Mount Vernon and enjoyed a riverboat cruise of the Potomac River. The group also hosted a Congressional Summit for the Oklahoma Delegation, aides and guests, assisted by Congressman Lucas, Cole and Senator Inhofe and their staff . The Rural Electric Youth Tour is a joint eff ort of local electric cooperatives such as Harmon Electric Association, the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives in Oklahoma City and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association in Arlington, VA.
