Satilla REMC Selects WYT delegates before trip is canceled during Pandemic

Alex Davis, Aizhia Poblete, Andrew Rozier and Jenna Williams were selected to represent Satilla REMC on the 2020 Washington Youth Tour (WYT). The once-in-a-lifetime leadership experience was scheduled for June 18-25, 2020.However, due to the COVID-19 virus, we are saddened to announce this year’s Washington Youth Tour has been canceled. The health and safety of student delegates and chaperones were determining factors in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s decision to cancel the 2020 WYT.

Alex is the daughter of Anthony and Donna Davis. She is a rising senior at Coffee County High School in Douglas. She is a member of the tennis team and cheerleading squad. She also serves as class president.

Aizhia, a rising senior at Appling County High School in Baxley, is the daughter of Rowell and Minerva Poblete. She is a member of her school’s show choir, band, and dance group.

Andrew (Rew), the son of Andrew and Kristina Rozier, is a rising senior at Pierce County High School in Blackshear. His school activities include soccer, football and the math team.

Jenna, a rising junior, attends Citizens Christian Academy in Douglas. She is the daughter of Marvin and Gina Williams. At school, she is a member of the track, tennis and basketball team. She is also a member of the cheer squad.

The Washington Youth Tour has traditionally been a life-changing week for delegates from Georgia and elsewhere. Not only do they get to visit iconic Washington, D.C., landmarks, but they are able to bond with high-achieving, driven peers and develop relationships that can last a lifetime. Some delegates even change their career aspirations after returning from the WYT. In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson initiated the program to “send youngsters to the nation’s capital, where they can actually see what the flag stands for and represents.”
