Alexis Wagner, of Mount Pleasant, has been selected to attend the 2023 Youth Tour on June 18-23. The event is an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. sponsored by Access Energy Cooperative.
Alexis 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.
Alexis is a sophomore at Mount Pleasant Community High School, and is the daughter of Alan and Julie Wagner. She is involved in a variety of school activities including cross country, wrestling, track, jazz band, musical, and show choir.
While on tour, Alexis will learn about American history and government. She will visit historical sights including monuments, museums, the U.S. Capitol, federal agencies and other points of interest. She will also have an opportunity to meet with their legislators in the House and Senate.
Access Energy Cooperative has been a part of the Youth Tour program since 1958 and currently selects up to two students each year to participate in the seven-day trip. The students are selected through an application and interview process.
