Gabby David selected as Itasca-Mantrap Youth Tour representative

Itasca-Mantrap Cooperative has named Gabby David as its 2018 Youth Tour representative. David, a junior at Nevis High School, will represent the cooperative on an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. June 9-14 as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The contest was open to sophomores and juniors who live in the Itasca-Mantrap service area. Candidates were required to submit an application detailing their background and achievements and were asked to answer questions regarding cooperative issues. Finalists were then interviewed by a panel of judges before a selection was made.

David will join hundreds of youth representing electric cooperatives from across the United States in Washington, D.C. to learn more about our nation’s rich political history, see American government in action, and tour famous historical monuments. Students will also meet with legislators and learn more about the importance of electric cooperatives. 

David was selected based on her academic and personal achievements. She is involved in activities that include Knowledge Bowl, art club, math league, and softball. She is the daughter of Amy Thunstrom and Nick David.
