Government-In-Action Youth Tour 2017
Thursday, June 15, 2017

Jackson Electric was proud to announce the sponsorship of 2 eligible high school students for the 2017 Government in Action Youth Tour that took place on June 7 - 16, 2017. Congrats to our very own Kobe Blackmon.

The Youth Tour started in Austin.  The first day of the tour included tours of the Texas State Capitol, the Bob Bullock Museum and Texas State Cemetery.  Activities include seeing a show at the Bullock IMAX and Texas Spirit Theater and dining at the famous food trailers in South Austin. Once in Washington, students participated in guided tours of historic sites, museums and congressional offices, where they met with their U.S. representatives. Entertainment opportunities on the trip included seeing a performance at the Kennedy Center and going on a dinner and dancing cruise on the Potomac River. Participants also attend Youth Day, hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, for a day of learning and inspiration.
