This summer, Mitchell High School student Emma Sowders was sponsored by Orange County REMC to attend the Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. 

Youth Tour provides young Hoosiers the opportunity to visit the nation’s capital, learn about government, experience American history and gain a better understanding about their electric cooperative. 

The students visited the Flight 93 Memorial, Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, National Museum of the Marine Corps and Smithsonian museums. The delegation also toured the National Mall memorials, took a night cruise on the Potomac River, spent a day on Capitol Hill and much more.
