Meet Cherryland’s 2019 Youth Tour Attendees

Every June, we sponsor two students from local high schools to represent Cherryland on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour; a once-in-a-lifetime, all-expenses-paid leadership travel opportunity to Washington, D.C. Learn more about this year’s students and why they wanted to attend Youth Tour.

Where do you attend high school?

I am a sophomore at Traverse City West Senior High School.

What extracurricular activities are you involved with?

I am a member of the National Honor Society and a fifth-year academic awards winner. I also have been in the choir program for five years, most currently in the West Senior High Bel Canto group. I have been playing tennis since I was very young and have been on the TC West Varsity Tennis team for two years now. I am interested in government, and I spent last summer working on our State Representative’s re-election campaign, as well as participating in other local political events throughout the years.

Why do you want to attend Youth Tour?

Youth Tour will open up so many opportunities for my future and give me the chance to meet kids from all over the country! It is a once-in-a-lifetime trip. I am very excited to see government up close, and I am very honored I was chosen to represent Cherryland Electric Cooperative in Washington, D.C. this summer.

Where do you attend high school?

I am a sophomore at Benzie Central High School.

What extracurricular activities are you involved with?

I am a member of Student Council, Interact Club, BC Pride, and the school newspaper. I participate in the annual fall play, the Benzie-Frankfort ski team in the winter, and the Benzie girls’ varsity soccer team in the spring. I love to draw, as well as read books and learn about history. I’ve volunteered at my local library since the seventh grade.

Why do you want to attend Youth Tour?

I would like to learn and understand even more about the history of our nation. You cannot truly solve problems if you don’t understand the underlying history and background behind them. I want to attend Youth Tour to continue to do just that, and hopefully make friends and connections from all over the country as well.
