Randolph EMC is proud to sponsor Chatham Central Sophomore Macy Henson on the 2019 North Carolina Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., this June. Approximately 45 young leaders from North Carolina will join 1,800 students from across the country for a week of learning about our nation’s history and the importance of civic engagement.
Out of several applications, Macy earned the opportunity to attend after completing an essay and interview process.
Aside from an excellent academic resume, Macy is very involved in extracurricular activities such as church youth group, competitive clogging and being a member of the bluegrass band New Southern Ground. She is excited to broaden her knowledge in how politics relate to the energy industry and learn more about what it takes to be an educated voter as a young adult.
We’re extremely thrilled to be able to offer such a wonderful opportunity to the youth within the communities REMC serves.

Macy and the other North Carolina delegates will also engage in discussions with members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation on Capitol Hill.
