Stephanie Barwick, a senior at Pepperell High School, was named the Rome Exchange Club’s Youth of the Year on Friday. Barwick delivered a speech at the noon Exchange Club meeting held at the Paladium. The speech focused on the youth of today and expressed Barwick’s view that many have lost track of the nation’s founding fathers vision for the country.

Carsten Boehm represented Armuchee High, Kyle Peals represented Coosa High, Kristian Kelley represented Model High and there were also representatives from Darlington and Rome High at the Exchange contest. Barwick will now represent the Rome club at the Georgia District Conference in June. 

Barwick earlier in the year won the state title in the Georgia FFA Job Interview Career Development Event at the state finals at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia. She plans to seek a career in agribusiness and is considering Kennesaw State University, North Georgia College and State University or Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College after graduation.
