Two Cherokee County School District students have been named to the State School Superintendent’s 2017-18 Student Advisory Council!
Woodstock High School junior Anna Fournaris and Creekland Middle School seventh-grader Brayden Fuentes are among the 142 students statewide tapped to serve on the council made up of middle and high school students. Members were selected from more than 1,500 applications based on their community service experience and their answers to essay questions about public education and how they think it could be improved.
“Every year, it is so valuable to hear directly from students through my Student Advisory Council,” Superintendent Woods said. “In the past, we have made direct changes based on student feedback, and I look forward to working with these 142 students who I know will make an impact. I’m so grateful for every student who took the time to apply and share their thoughts.”
The Council will meet with Superintendent Woods to talk about issues including how state policies affect their classrooms, and also will serve as the Superintendent’s student ambassadors and participate in service projects.
The two CCSD students will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the Board’s Oct. 19, 2017 meeting.
