Itasca-Mantrap has named Sierra Wroolie as its 2019 Youth Tour representative.
Sierra, a junior at Nevis High School, will represent the cooperative on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. June 15-20, as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour.
Sierra will join hundreds of youth representing electric cooperatives from across the United States in Washington, D.C. to learn more about our nation’s rich political history, see American government in action, and tour famous historical monuments. Students will also meet with legislators and learn more about the importance of electric cooperatives. This trip is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Sierra was selected based on her personal achievements and community involvement. She is involved in activities that include knowledge bowl, band, robotics, track, and student council. She is the daughter of Amy and Dustin Wroolie.
“The Youth Tour is the highlight of the summer for many students from the Greater Park Rapids Area. We’re proud to send Sierra Wroolie to Washington, D.C. to participate,” said Nikki Torkelson, Marketing and Member Services manager, “These students will gain a first-hand understanding of the legislative process and make connections with others from across the country that will last a lifetime. Our youth are the future for our community and our country, and we can give them the tools to succeed.”
