“Each one of the these students exemplified great leadership qualities, abilities and talents,” Customer Relations Supervisor Joelyn Hansen said. “These kids are already doing some amazing things and will represent our utility well at the rally, as well as the community.”

The students will join other youth – representing utilities in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Alaska – at the College of Idaho Campus for one week to participate in a variety of activities and classes to promote positive relationships, teamwork and build leadership skills. Youth will also learn about government, drug and alcohol awareness, and the electrical/energy industry.
