cgemc washington youth tour delegates shine

On June 14, CGEMC Youth Tour Delegates, Hadassah Nehikhuere and Harsh Patel, embarked on an incredible journey to Washington, D.C. The kickoff began in Atlanta, with a welcome reception, guest speaker, and formal dinner. Immediately after their guests left, the team building began!

Among the more than 100 delegates from Georgia, Harsh impressed his peers and was elected by vote as a "Top Five" candidate for the national Youth Leadership Council position.


L to R: Harsh Patel (CGEMC), Sydney Lawson (Middle Georgia EMC), Arham Shah (Altamaha EMC), Brooke Bridges (Hart EMC), and Alex Blankinship (Cobb EMC).

Photos are still rolling in from the whirlwind tour of Washington, D.C. We will be sharing those in a future edition of Central Dispatch.

Do you know someone who would make a great Washington Youth Tour delegate? Keep an eye out for more information from us this fall!

Community snapshot

June was a busy month in our 14 counties! CGEMC is always proud to serve our communities.

Attending the conference last year taught me time management skills,” said FCCLA Chapter Leader Lauren Maddox. “Also, the speakers were very inspirational, encouraging us to push through failures and keep moving forward.
As a daughter of an Air Force Veteran, I wanted to honor my father and other veterans’ legacies by assisting those who require the services of a food pantry and clothing and household items bank,” said Play Hard Elite Executive Director Tonya Lewis. “We are thankful to the CGEMC Foundation and participating members for helping us provide services to our heroes.
We are so grateful for the continued support of the CGEMC Foundation participants.” said Project Linus Chapter Coordinator Denise Varnadoe, ”This grant will help make a lot of blankets! We are always in need of volunteers. Sewing ability is not required to make a difference!

Operation Round Up

In June, a total of $14,900 was awarded by our Operation Round Up Foundation to non-profit organizations in our service territory.

Through Operation Round Up, our members support local organizations with a mission to make our communities even better places to live, work, and dream big. By rounding up your monthly electric bill to the next dollar, you can join in! Our pennies add up to make BIG CHANGE!
