Georgia’s 111 Washington Youth Tour (WYT) delegates have chosen Dacula’s Chris Larkins, sponsored by Jackson EMC, as the 2015 state representative to the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s (NRECA) Youth Leadership Council (YLC).
Larkins was chosen while on the WYT, June 11-18, 2015. He’ll return to Washington, D.C. in July, along with 43 other state representatives. During the week-long leadership training, they’ll gain a broader understanding of cooperatives, sharpen their speaking skills and enhance their leadership abilities.
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, LA in February; and speak at the WYT kickoff banquet in June 2016.
