WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

A number of former Washington Youth Tour (WYT) delegates followed a path that led
them to military service. Here's a look at a few:

Delegates' career paths lead back to Washington, D.C.

F

or some delegates, the Washington Youth Tour (WYT)
experience whets their appetite for a career in public
service or reaffirms a decision they already had made.
Here are two WYT alumni from Georgia who returned
to the nation's capital to work.

staff who led the WYT and they introduced me to Anne
Hicks at Georgia Transmission Corp., where I was
hired as a legal intern. This was my first job during law
school, and it paved the way for a career in energy law
and policy. 

Talk a little about your current position and responsibilities.

Duvall: I cannot say enough about what this weeklong
program has to offer. Visiting D.C., learning about our
nation's history and meeting with elected officials provided me an opportunity to explore my passions and
goals in life. One of the most rewarding takeaways from
the week was learning the importance of leadership and
how to be a leader, a lesson that stuck with me through
college and now in my career.

Andrew C. Wills
2006 WYT delegate
representing Satilla REMC
I am the director of
government relations and
counsel for the American
Public Power Association,
a trade association that
provides services for more
than 2,000 communityowned utilities through 
Andrew C. Wills
advocacy, education and
collaboration. I work with members of the U.S. Congress
and their staffs to understand how proposed and existing
legislation affects public power utilities.

Zellie Duvall
2008 WYT delegate
representing Rayle EMC
As a current [Capitol]
Hill staffer in Washington,
D.C., I have the honor
to serve as the legislative
correspondent for U.S.
Rep. Buddy Carter, from
the 1st District of Georgia.
My responsibilities include Rep. Buddy Carter
and Zellie Duvall
managing the office mail
program and handling
the legislative portfolio for agricultural issues, Second
Amendment issues, and science and technology.

How did the Washington Youth Tour (WYT) prepare you
for the career path you've taken?
Wills: The WYT was my first visit to Washington, D.C.,
and the first time I considered the critical role that national politics play in our day-to-day lives. I fell in love
with our capital city-its many beautiful monuments,
historical markers and essential executive, legislative and
judicial activity. The WYT connected me with an amazing group of my Georgia peers, many of whom became
lifelong friends. Finally, I maintained contact with EMC
22D

What advice would you give to current Youth Tour delegates?
Wills: Do your research, because you'll better understand the significance of what you're seeing. Make
friends, because those friends may build the foundation for your first network outside your hometown.
Make connections, because people you meet may be
your professional allies for many years. Above all, have
fun and take advantage of the amazing opportunity the
WYT provides!  
Duvall: Make the most of this week in D.C. and get
to know your peers, because the relationships you
build during the week will last a lifetime. Thank you to
Georgia EMC, Youth Tour leaders, chaperones and my
fellow delegates for making my week in D.C. a once-ina-lifetime opportunity.
