2016 Washington Youth Tour Winners Announced
White County residents Kaitlyn King and Victoria Sesam were have been chosen to participate in the 51st annual Washington Youth Tour, an all-expense paid leadership experience sponsored by electric membership cooperatives in Georgia, including Habersham EMC.
To be chosen for the trip is a real honor, particularly since candidates vie for a spot alongside other teens across the state who are community volunteers, student athletes, and members of respected academic organizations such as Beta Club, National Honor Society, Governor’s Honors Program, Student Council, Key Club, Debate Club, Future Business Leaders of America, Interact Club and Science Olympiad, among many other prized clubs and associations.
The Youth Tour was established with one thought in mind – to inspire the next generation of leaders. This year’s tour, which takes place June 9-16, exposes students to the fast-paced world of politics, leadership and agenda-setting.
We are excited for both students and their opportunity to represent Habersham EMC.
