Last year’s Walton EMC Youth Tour delegates, from left, Abiseniya Lemma, Elise Karinshak, Presley Rowe and Kaelyn Kim, spent eight jam-packed days with new Georgia friends that included seeing Washington, D.C.’s iconic sights and meeting with our state’s Senators and Representatives.

Every year, Walton EMC sends four local high school sophomores or juniors to represent our co-op, hone their leadership skills and experience our nation’s capital on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The experience is all-expenses paid!
