Addyson Hefta Selected For North Dakota Youth Tour

Addyson Hefta, a junior at Midway Public High School, and the daughter of Justin Hefta, has been selected to represent Nodak Electric Cooperative on the North Dakota Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., in June 2023. Addyson is involved in FCCLA, Sources of Strength, NHS, and the Student Council. She is actively involved in golf, volleyball, basketball and softball.

The Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., is more than a trip to the nation’s capital to sightsee. It is a prominent event in which thousands of high school students from across the United States gain an understanding of our nation’s history and the freedoms we enjoy, along with the many costs of those freedoms.

The Youth Tour is designed to provide an opportunity for outstanding rural young people to better understand the value of rural electrification. It familiarizes youth with the historic and political environment of our nation’s capital through firsthand looks at monuments, historically significant national sites and government buildings.

Nodak Electric Cooperative believes in investing in today’s youth. We are investing in our – and your – future. We know we have the brightest students right here in this area, and we want to give them the opportunity to experience the past, present, and future of our country.

Congratulations, Addyson!
