A local youth got a chance in recent weeks to learn about the various ways people become leaders during a conference held in the middle of the state.
According to a release from the Polk County University of Georgia Extension Office, Rockmart High School’s Noah Ensley recently attended a three-day conference in Covington for the Georgia Cooperative Council’s youth leadership program.
Ensley took part in a variety of activities at the conference designed to help youth “explore the cooperative way of doing business,” the release stated.
Ensley, sponsored by the Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative, took part in team-building exercises, personality assessments, and an in-depth look into the cooperatives and how they work.
The conference was able to bring in students from all across the state to Covington’s FFA-FCCLA Center and use their facilities for many of the events.
