Established in 1988, the mission of ETREYS (East Texas Rural Electric Youth Seminar) is to foster positive ideas and values among young people and to enhance skills in leadership, problem-solving and interpersonal relationships.
Each year, Cherokee County Electric Cooperative joins eight other east Texas cooperatives in sponsoring the East Texas Rural Electric Youth Seminar (ETREYS). CCECA offers an all-expenses-paid trip to 10 sophomores and juniors who are attending a high school in the CCECA service area. Participants are selected on the basis of overall excellence and involvement in extracurricular activities including leadership positions, academic awards, etc.
Participating cooperatives include: Bowie-Cass, Cherokee County, Deep East, Houston County, Jasper-Newton, Panola-Harrison, Rusk County, Upshur Rural and Wood County. This year the event will be held June 22-26, 2020 at East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, Texas.
