BRECO is proud to once again partner with DEMCO (Dixie Electric Membership Corporation) in supporting four local high school students recently selected to participate in the Washington Youth Tour. "We are extremely appreciative of the continued support of the members and leadership of BRECO, for the sake of our youth who participate in this wonderful program" stated David Latona, VP of Marketing and Member Services for DEMCO.
Now in its 42nd year, this remarkable program affords youth a weeklong trip to Washington, D.C. to learn of our nation's rich history and politics. Electric co-ops from 45 states participate, sending more than 1800 youth nationwide to Washington each year. Locally, twelve finalists are chosen to present their essays advocating political reform, written to local and national leaders, at the annual DEMCO Washington Youth Tour Banquet. The top four presenters are then chosen to represent Louisiana youth in Washington, D.C. "It has been an honor to work with DEMCO in supporting tomorrow's leaders," stated Joshua Poole, CEO of BRECO Federal Credit Union. "These are extraordinary young adults, who are dedicated to building a better future."
