Local Woman At Leadership Institute

Submitted Photo Mariah Fox of Galt, left, and Haley Hingst of Hermann, right, were among the 108 high school students from across Missouri who participated in the Electric Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience Program held July 20-22 in Jefferson City. The event was sponsored by Missouri Institute of Cooperatives in Columbia. Miss Fox, who will be a senior at Trenton High School this fall, won MIC’s Public Speaking Contest and Miss Hingst was the second-place winner in the state contest. Attendance at CYCLE is part of the award given by MIC to the speaking contest winners. The students were given the opportunity to learn firsthand what it is like to be involved in politics, the cooperative form of business and being a leader. The program included nationally known speakers and a day at the Missouri State Capitol learning how a bill goes through the process to become a law. To learn more about cooperatives, the group was divided up into small teams that competed in various events like the “build a cooperative” game. Another highlight was hearing from the Rachel’s Challenge Organization. Rachel Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine High School tragedy on April 20, 1999. Today, her family and friends speak to youth around the world about Rachel’s legacy of being a positive role model to everyone she met in life.
