NFEC Seeks Students For Leadership Summit
Northfork Electric Cooperative is seeking students to participate in the 2018 Oklahoma’s Electric Cooperatives Leadership Summit to be held Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the Chesapeake Finish Line Tower in Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District. This annual event is designed to excite and motivate high school students to become leaders of their communities.
Two students currently in the 10th, 11th or 12th grade will be selected from the cooperative’s service area to attend the Leadership Summit. In addition, NFEC will provide both students with a $250 scholarship.
Thirty students representing Oklahoma’s Electric Cooperatives will be attending the event. Almost 500 Oklahoma high school students have been recognized for their leadership abilities by having the opportunity to attend one of the previous leadership summits.
The January 27 program will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature energetic and motivating leadership expert, Rhett Laubach, owner of Edmond-based YourNextSpeaker!
“The Leadership Summit program is unique in its design and truly provides an unforgettable experience for each student who attends,” said NFEC Youth Programs Coordinator Matthew Swint.
“NFEC and the other Oklahoma electric cooperatives are proud to provide students from across the state the opportunity to expand their leadership abilities by taking part in this fun and exciting leadership program.”
