    REC’s Youth Tour Students go to Richmond Legislative Day
    Fredericksburg, Va. – Going beyond the textbook, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) recently hosted its annual Richmond Youth Legislative Day. Natalie Heiser of Culpeper, Nada Ismael of Fauquier, Jeremy Petrie and Abigail Varricchio of Frederick, Karrington Wilson and Kennedi Wilson of Hanover, students from REC’s 2018 Washington Youth Tour program, traveled to Richmond to see Virginia state government in action.
    While there, the students brought their school lessons to life by visiting with House of Delegate members Michael J. Webert, R-Fauquier, and Hyland F. “Buddy” Fowler, R-Hanover, attending a session of the Virginia House of Delegates and touring the Virginia State Capitol.
    When speaking to the students, the officials stressed the importance of younger adults participating in the democratic process and offered insight into the legislative issues affecting Virginia at the state level.
    “It’s very important for high school students to become involved in the democratic process,” said Brian Wolfe, REC’s youth tour coordinator. “The Cooperative’s Youth Tour program provides students a stepping stone to learning how they can make a difference. And actions by the General Assembly directly impact every one of us, including young adults.”
