WHHS student one Sawnee EMC's youth leadership conference reps
By Ken Stanford Staff
CUMMING - A West Hall High School student recently participated in a youth leadership trip to Washington, D.C., sponsored by Cumming-based Sawnee EMC.
Nili Nourpavar (Centennial High School) and Chad Newstrom (West Hall High School) were chosen earlier this year by the electric co-op, through an application and interview process, to represent the cooperative June 12–19 on the nationally recognized Washington Youth Tour.
They joined 107 high school students from across Georgia in this national program to learn leadership skills, the need for civic involvement, and to immerse themselves in the culture and history of the U.S.
For nearly 50 years, more than 50,000 young people have traveled to Washington with the help of their electric cooperative.
