Three Oconee County High School students and one North Oconee High student recently attended the 2012 Youth Assembly, sponsored by the State YMCA of Georgia. Emory Linder, Godfrey Hendrix and Zachary Kennedy attended from OCHS. Caleb Denham attended from North Oconee. Through this experience, students were provided the opportunity to discuss current state issues with state administrators, elected officials, and students from high schools throughout the state. The students practiced writing and debating Bills in the House of Representatives. They were also assigned to Committees within the House. The students were advised by Kevin Guthas of Oconee County High School.
