Each year, Southwest Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation takes seven high school Juniors to Washington, D.C., as part of the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to learn about history, government and leadership. Health concerns prevented the 2021 trip, so the co-op presented scholarships to this year’s winners. “Whether it be through the Youth Tour program or scholarships, supporting the future of these students and the communities they represents is an investment that will create a brighter future for us all,” says Tina Morris, STEMC communications and community outreach specialist. “We are excited to see them grow their talents and knowledge, and we are confident these students will each find ways to impact our communities in the future.”
