Snapping Shoals EMC is sending three local high school students on a trip to our nation's capital in June. Ronan Fitzgerald of Conyers, Doster Harper of Covington, and Emily Lent of Oxford will represent SSEMC on the 2017 Washington Youth Tour.

The Washington Youth Tour is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience our nation's history and government up close while developing leadership skills and having fun with teens representing co-ops from all across the country.

Youth Tour highlights typically include visiting the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Supreme Court, Holocaust Museum, Smithsonian Institution and, whenever possible, the White House. Other stops that are usually on the busy schedule are 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.
