Jesse Kimsey, a student at Jones County High School, represented Tri-County EMC at the Georgia Cooperative Youth Conference held July 15-19 at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center in Covington. The mission of the conference is to educate students about cooperatives, build their leadership skills and promote teamwork through a series of activities, trainings and presentations. During the 5-day conference, students heard presentations from many different cooperatives and were able to see co-ops in action by visiting Walton EMC, Athens Grocery Co-op and Williams Dairy. In addition to gaining knowledge about cooperatives, students also participated in the mud course and high ropes course.
