Thirty-five teens from 15 Indiana electric cooperatives spent Jan. 26 learning about Indiana government firsthand during REMC Page Day. The students, aged 13-18, toured the Indiana Statehouse — including the governor’s office — observed a session of the House of Representatives, attended committee meetings, assisted legislative staff and met with their legislator.

This was the third year for the program, which is coordinated by Indiana Electric Cooperatives, the service association for Indiana’s 38 electric cooperatives. Co-ops who sent students to Indianapolis for Page Day were Clark County REMC, Decatur County REMC, Dubois REC, Fulton County REMC, Hendricks Power Cooperative, Henry County REMC, Jackson County REMC, Kankakee Valley REMC, Marshall County REMC, NineStar Connect, Northeastern REMC, South Central Indiana REMC, Southeastern Indiana REMC, Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC, and WIN Energy REMC.
