PUEBLO WEST, Colo. — Two Pueblo West high school students who were selected by San Isabel Electric for a week long, all-expense-paid leadership camp in Washington D.C. talk about their trip and what they took away from the experience.
Sherri Wood and Ashlynn Danielson were selected to join hundreds of Electric Cooperative youth from all across the country for the annual Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. They visited dozens of monuments, had dinner with a legislator and visited with U.S. Senators and Representatives.
The trip was Wood and Danielson’s first time away from home for more than a week. Both took a lot away from this experience, from leadership skills to how real and human politics are.
