Dawson Public Power District is proud to announce its sponsorship of Rigo Arias, a Lexington High School student, to attend the 2024 Nebraska Rural Electric Association Youth Energy Leadership Camp.

At the camp, Arias will broaden his understanding of the unique role of public power. Arias is the son of Maria Arias, also of Lexington.

“Dawson PPD is pleased to send Rigo to YELC,” said Communications Specialist Chelsea Gengenbach. “This is an amazing opportunity to learn about the electricity that powers our lives and potentially explore career paths in the energy sector.”

The week-long camp, held at Camp Comeca near Cozad in July, brings together students from across Nebraska for an immersive learning experience. Through workshops, presentations, and interactive activities, campers will gain a deeper understanding of:

  • The electric utility industry and its operations
  • The importance of public power in Nebraska
  • The various methods of electricity generation
  • Techniques for effective leadership

In addition to classroom sessions, attendees will participate in tours of the Gerald Gentleman Power Station and the Kingsley Hydro-Electric Power Plant, providing a firsthand look at the processes behind electricity generation.

Dawson PPD is committed to supporting educational programs that benefit our communities. By sponsoring students like Rigo to attend the NREA Youth Energy Leadership Camp, Dawson PPD is investing in the future leaders of Nebraska’s energy industry.
