"Wow, I can't believe Missouri Youth Tour '11 is over! It was truly a trip of a lifetime, and I know all of us are so very grateful to our sponsering electric co-op! I made so many new awesome friends that I will never forget! Thank you Mike and all of the other chaperones! You guys were great!!"

"Wow, what an experience. I met so many great people in the past few days. I also got a few awesome nicknames! Romeo and Simba, to name a few. I'll never forget this trip, or all of the wonderful people I spent my time with. Thank you all for such an experience!"
-Jacob Jones

"We are currently on the plane to go home. It has been an amazing trip, truly a trip of a lifetime. The friends that I met and the memories of all the monuments and places we went to will be truly unforgettable. We are already planning a reunion of all the Youth Tour delegates this fall! We are definitely a very happy family. I'll miss you all!"

"Today was our final day of touring. We went to the capitol and met with our representatives and took photos with the other delegates from our cooperatives. We also went to the library of congress. It was definitely my favorite. The architecture and murals on the wall were nothing comparable to anything from back home. It's crazy that this is our last night together. It has gone by so fast and slow at the same time. The days have been long, but really fun which makes it fast, if you can catch my drift at all. It was so easy to make friends with all these people that I have never met before. I'm really going to miss some of them. This was definitely the trip of my lifetime. I want to thank the cooperatives again for making this all possible and for everything they do!"

"Last Friday, little did we know that all 83 of us would become like one family. 6 days ago we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. I remember walking into the banquet room and thinking that there is no way I was going to be able to meet and get to actually know all these kids but I WAS WRONG! Literally we are a family. Last night showed how well we can stick together. The game was intense and so were our chants along with the booing mob of Nationals fans but we stood together and got under their skin. These days have gone by so slowly but that could be because we usually are up for a good 15 hour day and most the time more. This trip was truly a trip of a lifetime that will be impossible to forget. This trip was truly a trip of a lifetime! I loved every minute of it (even the getting up early part because it is totally worth it!) I was so glad to make so many amazing friends that I will never forget! Thank you so much Macon Electric and all the chaperons for allowing me the chance to go. It was great meeting everyone and making so many great memories, so stay in touch! :)"

"The trip was amazing!!! I had such a great time in DC! I met so many awesome people the last week, I miss everyone already! All of the touring was great and going to the cardinals game will be something i will never forget even though they lost. :( Thank you to the chaperons and coops!!! It was the trip of a lifetime and I will never forget it!!"
