“Every year, CFEMC recognizes outstanding high school students who are leaders in their schools, communities, places of worship, or academic and community organizations by providing a valuable leadership development program for exceptional teens through the Washington Youth Tour, established by America’s electric cooperatives to inspire and educate our youth.” A statement from the CFEMC reads.

Jackson Terrell of Newnan high school also received the honor and will join Cameron in the nation’s capital.

“We’re excited for Niyah and Jackson to represent CFEMC on the upcoming in-person 2022 Washington Youth Tour,” Rachel Camp, CFEMC youth tour coordinator, said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity that will allow both students to network with fellow peers from across the state, explore our nation’s educational museums and monuments, and enhance their knowledge of our government,” said Camp.
