ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Monroe High School graduate will represent South Georgia at a national conference in Kansas City this month.

James Guest is attending the Skills U-S-A National Student Leadership conference where he'll compete for scholarship money for college. It's an organization geared towards empowering students to become world class workers and leaders.

"Something that I worked so hard for. Like last year when I was in the 11th grade, I went to state level but I didn't place. So I took a year off and I was able to come back and achieve my goal of winning," said James Guest.

Guest plans to attend Darton State College and study occupational therapy.
