High school juniors get behind-the-scenes look at state capitol
FRANKFORT – Around 150 from 18 of Kentucky’s electric co-ops participated in KAEC’s annual Frankfort Tour.
The group of high school juniors from all across the state spent the day touring the capitol, the governor’s mansion and were able to ask questions of House Majority Floor Leader Jonathan Shell, and Kentucky’s Secretary of Labor Derrick Ramsey.
"It's great to see the kids experience our state capitol, especially those who've never been," said Mary Beth Dennis who organizes the trip for KAEC.
In addition, the group lunched and toured the Kentucky Historical Museum.
A selected number of students that attended the Frankfort Youth Tour, will be invited to KAEC’s Washington Youth Tour in June.
