Youth Tour 2019: Cindy’s Story

Cindy Nolasco-Rios, a Ulysses student, was selected as one of the four student delegates for this year’s Youth Tour programs. In July, she and other high school students from across Kansas journeyed to Steamboat Springs, CO for a week-long adventure. Together, the students built leadership skills, learned about the cooperative business model and formed new friendships and we’re challenged to set goals for their future.

“…If you notice that a flower is wilting you don’t just take it out…you change the environment in which it is growing,” 
 -Cindy Nolasco-Rios (2018 Youth Tour Delegate)

Youth Tour is a free leadership building opportunity sponsored by Pioneer Electric and coordinated by Kansas Electric Cooperatives. The program is open to sophomores and juniors that attend a school serviced by Pioneer Electric Cooperative. Applications and additional information can be found here.
