The Junior Leadership of Williamsburg's first class of leaders went on their highly anticipated Leadership Tour of Washington, DC in June. The following leaders enjoyed their trip, Shaun Swinton, Kiana Miller, Corey Green, SaDazia Driffin, Miracle Kinlaw, Treymone Singletary, and Alexandria Ivey. Leslee and Bunny Spivey were the volunteer chaperones along with the Williamsburg County 4-H Agent, Jolie Brown. The group of 10 toured the Capitol where they met Congressman James Clyburn.

Congressman Clyburn's local office and representative, Kenny Barnes, were very helpful in planning the group's trip to DC. Congressman Clyburn had a sit down discussion with the JLW group where he inspired everyone with his success story and how he lives his life according to our state's motto. The group also enjoyed touring the Air and Space, Natural History, and American History Smithsonian's. Several of the participants said one of their favorite stops on the tour was to the Kennedy Center, Tuesday night, for a concert put on by various artists each night for free. The group also enjoyed our Night Time Monument Tour and a trip to Arlington Cemetery. 

The National Zoo was a wonderful experience. The group enjoyed seeing the many animals, especially the pandas. Everyone enjoyed his or her stay at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  Williamsburg County 4-H and the HomeTown Chamber look forward to our next class of leaders. Information to apply for the 2015 Junior Leadership of Williamsburg class will come out in October.
