Anna Handley Selected for Carroll EMC Washington Youth Tour

Central High School Senior, Anna Handley, has been selected to participate in the Carroll EMC Washington Youth Leadership Program Tour. The all-expense paid trip takes three (3) students from the Carroll EMC service area to our nation’s capital for the experience of a lifetime.

Dating back to 1957, the Carroll EMC Washington Youth Tour is the oldest youth leadership program in the country. Anna will join students selected from other electric cooperatives in Georgia to represent our state in Washington D.C. The event brings together more than 1,500 young people from across the country for a week-long leadership program.

Youth Tour events for Georgia’s participants will begin with a kickoff banquet for students and their parents. Students fly to Washington D.C. and tour the U.S. Capitol, Holocaust Museum, Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Supreme Court, the National Cathedral and Arlington Cemetery, as well as the World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War memorials, and the Lincoln, Jefferson, and FDR Memorials.

Anna Handley will be attending the Georgia Institute of Technology in the fall and plans to earn her degree in Earth and Atmospheric Science.
