The Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative took five high school students who live in NOVEC's service territory on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 12-16 during the 52nd Annual National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Youth Tour. NOVEC's students were:
Cole Delinski, Prince William County, Forest Park High School; Alex Granche, Fauquier County, Kettle Run High School; Arianna Larson, Loudoun County, Woodgrove High School; Dung Ngo, City of Manassas Park, Manassas Park High School; and Daniel Park, Fairfax County, Westfield High School. The students toured Capitol Hill and had the opportunity to view the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee in action. They also visited historical and cultural sites in the nation's capital, including Arlington National Cemetery, the Pentagon Memorial, and the Newseum. For relaxation, the students enjoyed a twilight cruise on the Potomac River and a Washington Nationals baseball game. For more information about the Youth Tour Program, visit www.youthtour.coop.
