Students heard from leaders in the electric industry including NRECA Youth Programs and Training Manager Beth Knudson, as well as leadership speaker and entrepreneur Amy Gallimore. The Youth Leadership Summit also included a day of leadership training at the Joe C. Davis YMCA Outdoor Center, a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and a Nashville Predators game.

The delegates to the event received a hands-on look at state government, learned networking and leadership skills and developed a better understanding of their local electric cooperatives. Delegates to the Youth Leadership Summit are encouraged to be leaders in their schools and hometowns, and to use their talents to improve rural Tennessee.
