Congratulations to the 2023 Rolling Hills Electric Cooperative Youth Tour trip and scholarship winners THADDEUS (THAD) DONLEY, AUBREY GENGLER and DOAK GUTTERY!
Rolling Hills Electric’s strong tradition of promoting youth leadership continues by offering these winners all-expenses-paid leadership programs this summer. Winners were selected based upon application data, a written essay, and scores on an open-book electric co-op exam. The competition this year was tough, and we thank all the applicants for their time and efforts in applying!
