The students selected are:
- Drake Power, Shelton. Son of Blake Power and Emmy Power.
- Onyx Smith, Kearney. Daughter of Todd and Jody Smith of Kearney.
- Lily Valentin, North Platte. Daughter of Lacy McCreary of North Platte.
The camp’s purpose is to teach students about the electric utility industry and public power in Nebraska, and build their leadership skills.
About 50 students from around the state are expected to attend. The group participates in interesting workshops, fascinating demonstrations and presentations by regional experts. Tours of the Gerald Gentleman Power Station and the Kingsley Hydro-Electric Power Plant provide a first-hand look at the process of generating electricity.
Dawson PPD is pleased to support our local youth’s career aspirations.
