SOUTH FORSYTH -- Two Forsyth County teenagers will travel to the Capitol for a leadership experience organized by electric membership cooperatives in Georgia and across the country. Megha Sequeira, a senior at Lambert High, and Isha Naidu, a 17-year-old who attends South Forsyth High, will represent Cumming-based Sawnee EMC on the 52nd annual Washington Youth Tour on June 8-15 after completing an application process where they had to demonstrate leadership and social skills and a desire to learn more about electric cooperative business models, their government and their nation. “These students represent the next generation of educated, engaged citizen leaders in our communities and country,” said Cindy Badgett, director of external affairs for Sawnee EMC, which serves electricity to about 172,171 accounts in seven north Georgia counties.
