On January 29, Tri-County EMC’s 2023 Washington Youth Tour (WYT) Delegate, Jayden Daniel, had the opportunity to meet and speak with Governor Brian Kemp at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta. Jayden was featured in the January issue of Georgia Magazine for his work providing Easter baskets to children in foster care through his Lake Area Easter Basket Project. After reading the article, Governor Kemp invited Jayden to come to the dome. While there, Jayden received a Commendation from Governor Kemp for his service leadership and contributions to his community.

Jayden is a senior at Gatewood Schools in Eatonton. In 2020, he created the Lake Area Easter Basket Project, also known as Baskets of Hope, to bring joy through the power of a simple gift to children living in difficult circumstances. “We were extremely proud to have Jayden represent Tri-County EMC on the Washington Youth Tour last June,” said CEO Ray Grinberg. “Baskets of Hope exemplifies Tri-County EMC’s seventh cooperative principle, “Concern for the Community”, and he will continue to create a positive impact on many lives.” Since 1965, WYT has helped pave the way for many successful leaders, entrepreneurs, and community members. Tri-County EMC will announce its 2024 WYT delegates in April.
