Meet your neighbor: Shelby Savage
Shelby Savage says she fell in love with writing as a second grader, but she never expected it would take her all the way to the nation’s capitol.
As the winner of the Coosa Valley Electric Cooperative’s 23rd annual Youth Tour competition, she’s earned trips to Washington, D.C., and Montgomery “to learn more about how government operates, the history of those places, and all that they have to offer,” the Pell City High School junior said, adding that it all started with an essay.
“We had to write about how coops in general are different from for-profit businesses. (Chauntiel) Carr, who’s been my English teacher for the last two years, suggested that I enter. I’ve always loved to write, and the essay was one of the easiest parts of the competition, which also included an interview with a panel for judges, and a test about statistics and history.”
Active in school activities, Savage described the most difficult aspect of the Youth Tour competition, discussed her desire to be a published author, and identified the career path she hopes to pursue.
