OBEC Assists Youth Center
OBEC assists Youth Center with wall
Ozark Border Electric Cooperative is pleased to have recently had the opportunity to assist the W. E. Sears Youth Center with the construction of a rappelling and climbing wall at the youth center’s facility located at 9400 Sears Lane, north of Poplar Bluff. The youth center, which is a member of the cooperative, is a moderate care facility dedicated to the care, treatment, and supervision of court-committed youth up to 18 years of age. The wall being built on the grounds of W.E. Sears Youth Center with the coordination of Ozark Border will benefit the youth of Sears Youth Center and the whole Southeast Region of DYS. This includes 4 residential facilities and two Day Treatment facilities, or the equivalent of 150 youth at any given time.
