Georgia Rivers Alive Awards HCWA Cleanup
Georgia Rivers Alive recently honored the HCWA for hosting the best river cleanup in the state among clubs or civic groups. The Authority is the Rivers Alive 2019 Georgia Club winner as a result of the river cleanup the HCWA organized with Youth Leadership Henry.
Due to the pandemic, the HCWA was not able to receive this statewide award in person, nor was the Authority able to host this year’s Youth Leadership Henry Class for a site visit.
Last year, however, the HCWA hosted 27 Henry County students for an overview of the utility, tours of facilities, and a class service project, which was an official Henry County Rivers Alive cleanup event.
Youth Leadership Henry is a leadership program for high school sophomores sponsored by the Henry County Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of Youth Leadership Henry is to identify emerging leaders, to bring them together in an atmosphere conducive to the free exchange of ideas, and to provide them with an enlightening educational experience.
