Elsie Lange and Andi Scott, both of Mt. Pleasant, have been selected to attend the 2022 Youth Tour Trip on June 18-24, an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. sponsored by Access Energy Cooperative.
Elsie and Andi will join approximately 40 other Iowa students and nearly 1,000 students from across the country who have been selected by their electric cooperative to attend the annual Youth Tour.
Elsie is a sophomore at Mt. Pleasant Community High School, and is the daughter of Nathan and Kelly Lange. She is involved in a variety of school activities including basketball, cross country, track and student counsel. She volunteers in community projects and church functions, while maintaining different part time jobs.
Andi is also a sophomore at Mt. Pleasant Community High School, and is the daughter of Nathan and Danielle Scott. She too participates in a variety of school activities including basketball, show choir, and competition cheering. She volunteers at Old Threshers, Chamber Ambassadors and church events, also while maintaining various part time jobs.
While on tour, Elsie and Andi will learn about American history and government. They will visit historical sights including monuments, museums, the U.S. Capitol, federal agencies and other points of interest. They will also have an opportunity to meet with their legislators in the House and Senate.
We appreciate representatives from Southern Iowa Electric Cooperative and Chariton Valley Electric Cooperative for judging the interviews and helping to select these students as winners of the 2022 Youth Tour Trip.
Access Energy Cooperative has been a part of the Youth Tour program since 1958 and currently selects two students each year to participate in the seven-day trip. The students are selected through an application and interview process.
