Tri-County EMC has chosen three students to represent the co-op for Georgia EMC’s Washington Youth Tour. Kate Embry, Rebecca Hildreth and Calleigh Reber will join 110 Georgia high school students on the week long leadership event this June. The Georgia students will join more than 1,500 students from 44 states for the event. As Georgia’s oldest leadership program for teens, the Washington Youth Tour is designed to teach high school students about U.S. history, government and the importance of public service.
Before flying to Washington D.C., the students will attend a kickoff banquet and spend a day in Georgia where they will develop their leadership skills through team building activities. Once in D.C., students will visit the Smithsonian Museum, Holocaust Museum, Union Station, Mount Vernon, Supreme Court, Capitol, Washington Monument, and the Jefferson, World War II, Lincoln, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans monuments and memorials.
