Two high school juniors have been chosen to represent ECI REC in Washington, D.C., on the Youth Tour this June. They will visit historical sites, spend a day on Capitol Hill, meet congressional leaders, and more.
Macy Arbuckle is a home-schooled junior and the daughter of Jim and Carol Arbuckle. Through the Home School Assistance Program, Macy participates in yearly drama productions. As the recipient of a scholarship from the Iowa Honey Producers Association, Macy earned an entire hive setup. At Benton County’s Ag Day, Macy helped educate third-graders about bees.
Macy plays piano and guitar and teaches guitar lessons. Her community activities include membership at Oak Grove Christian Church and volunteering for the Ronald McDonald House.
Cade Shramek attends Prairie High School and is the son of Don and Lora Shramek of Amana. Cade is the percussion section leader for symphonic band and takes part in marching band, chorale choir, select men’s choir, and National Honor Society.
Cade plays on the Prairie soccer team, as well as the Premier Soccer Club of Eastern Iowa. As a member of Monroe Hustlers 4-H Club, Cade has served as treasurer and on the recreation committee. His other community involvement includes serving on the Johnson County Youth Council, and he is very involved with St. Mary’s church in Oxford.
Congratulations, Macy and Cade!
