Gwinnett County</p></div><p> </p><p>One Georgia student-delegate attending the Washington Youth Tour (WYT) is chosen each year to join the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s (NRECA) Youth Leadership Council (YLC). While on the June 11-18, 2015, trip this year, Georgia’s 111 WYT delegates chose Dacula’s Chris Larkins, sponsored by Jackson EMC, as the 2015 state representative to the YLC.</p><p>Larkins will return to Washington, D.C. July 18-22, along with 43 other state representatives. During the week-long leadership training, they’ll gain a broader understanding of cooperatives, sharpen their speaking and presentation skills and enhance their leadership abilities.</p><p>The true magic of this trip was meeting my fellow delegates from across the great state of Georgia. Connecting with some of the state’s finest and brightest leaders was an experience that’s hard to express in words,” said Larkins.</p><p>As Georgia’s representative, Larkins will also speak at Georgia EMC’s Annual Meeting, held in Savannah in November; participate in NRECA’s Annual Meeting in New Orleans in February; and speak at the WYT kickoff banquet in June 2016.</p><p>Learn more about youth programs and opportunities at <a href="https://www.jacksonemc.com/youth"><u>www.jacksonemc.com/youth</u></a>, Like us on Facebook at <a href="http://www.facebook.com/jacksonemc"><u>www.facebook.com/jacksonemc</u></a>, Follow us on Twitter at <a href="http://www.twitter.com/jacksonemc"><u>www.twitter.com/jacksonemc</u></a> and Check out our YouTube Channel at <a href="http://www.youtube.com/JEMCTV1"><u>www.youtube.com/JEMCTV1</u></a>.</p><p>As the events take place, view the photo gallery above for some of Larkins' highlights throughout his YLC journey.</p> </div>
