Any organization, community or country is only as strong as its leaders. That is why electric cooperatives across the country invest in youth leadership development programs. Our youth are our future leaders. However, all across our service area, there are outstanding young people who are already taking leadership roles and making great strides to enhance their schools and communities. We are asking our membership to help us recognize some of these young leaders.
Starting in February 2020 in The Tennessee Magazine, on this website and our social media pages, we will feature one young person a month who is:
- a student in an SVEC-area school
- is an outstanding young person
- is already serving their neighborhood, community or school.
They are accomplishing great things while they’re still in high school, middle-school or even elementary school.
We want to honor these students and make sure they realize how proud we are of them and how excited we are to see the world grow in their hands.
Rising Stars will be featured February, March, April, May, June, July, August, October, November and December of 2020. There will not be Rising Stars in January or September of 2020.
