Cobb EMC recently selected four local high school juniors to represent the company at the 2018 Washington Youth Tour, an all-expenses-paid, week-long leadership trip to Washington D.C. in June. 

“These talented students will join 1,800 student representatives from across the nation,” said Mark Justice, director of education and community relations at Cobb EMC. “They’ll meet with their elected representatives and discuss local and national issues with policy makers. This experience will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”

Cobb EMC’s 2018 winners were chosen following a rigorous application process that included an application, character references, a test on the electric cooperative business model and in-person interviews. In addition to the trip to Washington, all four will be eligible to interview for a summer internship with Cobb EMC.

  • 1st place: Kevin Goshay of Lassiter High School also won a $1,500 scholarship and intends to major in economics and mathematics.
  • 2nd place: Thomas Tucker of North Cobb Christian School also won a $1,000 scholarship and intends to major in political science and law.
  • 3rd place: Anna Nichols of Harrison High School also won a $500 scholarship and intends to major in chemical and biomolecular engineering.
  • 4th place: Raeah Woodson of Cornerstone Preparatory Academy intends to major in criminal defense.

The Washington Youth Tour, which is Georgia’s oldest leadership program for teens, is designed to challenge students to become engaged citizens. Since 1965, more than 50,000 students nationwide have participated in the leadership program.
