Eleven local high schoolers joined other students from across the state and visited Frankfort Tuesday as a part of the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperative’s Frankfort Youth Tour.
According to a news release from Pennyrile Electric, the program brings together students selected from their local electric cooperatives to tour Frankfort and learn about state government. The students were able to tour the capitol, the Governor’s mansion and the Kentucky History Museum.
They were able to hear a presentation from Secretary of Labor Derrick Ramsey and meet with House Majority Floor Leader Johnathan Shell.
