This Year’s Winners
"I cannot thank PRVEPA enough for this opportunity. I really enjoyed my time networking with my peers from across the state. I will take what I learned from this workshop and apply them as I go back into my school and my community."- Connor Gibson, YLC member
Two local high school juniors, Connor Gibson and Abigail Hammons of Oak Grove High School are the winners this year. In early March, they joined 66 other students from around the state in Jackson for the 35th annual Mississippi Youth Leadership Workshop, where they met with legislators and took part in leadership training sessions. Connor Gibson was named Mississippi's Youth Leadership Council Member. He will attend the NRECA Annual Meeting in Nashville, TN in 2023. Both Connor and Abigail will attend the Youth Tour of Washington D.C., June 19-24, 2022.
