Students Visit Springfield on Co-Op Day
Dozens of students from across the state visited the Capitol as part of the Illinois Electric and Telephone Cooperatives Youth Day.
The annual event held on April 3 in Springfield focuses on encouraging tomorrow’s leaders to take an interest in state government.
State Senator Dale Righter (R-Mattoon) welcomed a number of groups from the 55th Senate District to the Senate floor, including students representing Norris Electric Cooperative, Clay Electric Cooperative, Wayne-White Counties Electric Cooperative, Coles-Moultire Electric Cooperative, Wabash Communications Cooperative and Corn Belt Energy Corporation.
