Three Central High School Students named Carroll EMC Washington Youth Tour Delegates

Central High School students Anna Ayers, Jackson Burns and Shyann Woods were honored today by Carroll EMC. All three students have been selected to join the Washington Youth Leadership Program Tour. The all-expense paid trip takes student delegates 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, Shyann, and Jackson 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 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.

This is the first time three (3) students from Central High School have been selected to attend the Washington Youth Tour. Anna Ayers and Jackson Burns are members of the senior class and Shyann Woods is a sophomore.
