Green City, MO, March 22nd, 2023— NEMR hosted an interview dinner to choose two candidates to represent the company at the annual Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) Youth Tour to Washington D.C.
High school freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors within the company’s telephone/internet service area are given the opportunity to apply for this trip by submitting a one-page essay and an application.
On Wednesday, March 22nd, the students and their family members joined the Education Committee from NEMR’s Board of Directors, Michele Gillespie, CEO, and Justin Simmons, IT/Office Manager, FRS Youth Tour Coordinator to meet for a dinner and interview process.
The students were each called upon to introduce themselves and give a brief family history and other relevant information. Students shared about their hobbies, interests, future plans and other reasons they believed they were good candidates for the FRS Youth Tour.
Following the dinner, the Education Committee formally selected both students to attend the 2023 FRS Youth Tour scheduled May 31st – June 4th, 2023. This year’s two selected candidates that will be going are Kendal Anderson and Gabriella Frost.
“We enjoyed having the opportunity to learn more about these great students from our local schools,” said Gillespie. “Each one was an excellent candidate, and we look forward to having these students represent NEMR on this year’s FRS Youth Tour.”
The Foundation for Rural Service’s (FRS) annual Youth Tour is one of the most visible examples of the foundation’s involvement with, and commitment to, rural youth. Each year, in collaboration with NTCA member companies, FRS brings rural students from across the United States to Washington, D.C. for a four-day tour of some of the most historical sites in the nation.
