Have you heard the terrific news? Some of our very own students have been chosen to be on State School Superintendent Richard Woods’ very prestigious Student Advisory Council. What an honor to have 2 of the 110 students on the council from Henry County.

In an application pool of over 1,200 entries, seventh grader Kelsey Snell from Union Grove Middle and high school junior Andrea Augustine from Eagles Landing High School surpassed the competition with their answers to essay questions concerning ideas for public education and improving their own education. Kelsey and Andrea were chosen to be a part of the advisory council that meets to discuss different issues that affect them and their classmates with Superintendent Woods. Not only will they have the opportunity to impact big decisions, but also they will be ambassadors for thesuperintendentat their schools. It is an honor for both of these ladies to be able to learn and interact with something of such a big scale.

“We are proud to have great representatives from Henry County Schools serving in such an important capacity with State School Superintendent Woods,” said Henry County Schools Superintendent Rodney Bowler to Henry Daily Herald. Superintendent Bowler continues by saying, “Having young people involved in the process of influencing decisions that directly impact them is a great learning tool and opportunity to be role models to their peers. This is one way to build solid relationships between our district and the state department of education while engaged in relevant work.”

Continue to make an impact on Henry County students by volunteering and setting a good example. By doing this, we will continue to see our students achieve!
