Four Cherokee County School District students have been named to the State School Superintendent’s 2018-19 Student Advisory Council!
Woodstock HS junior Zakwan Khan, Creekland MS eighth-graders Sean Czerner and Brayden Fuentes, and E.T. Booth MS eighth-grader Ila Prabhuram are among the 120 students statewide selected to serve on the board of middle and high school students. This is the second consecutive year Brayden has been chosen to serve.
“Congratulations to these outstanding students, who we know will be excellent representatives for their schools and our School District on this important statewide council,” Cherokee County Superintendent of Schools said. “We look forward to seeing them further extend their influence as young leaders.”
Members were selected, from 1,000-plus applicants submitted by students statewide, based on their community service and answers to essay questions about public education and how it can improve. The students will talk with Superintendent Woods about topics including how State policies affect their classrooms; participate in service projects; and serve as the Superintendent’s student ambassadors.
“Every day, I’m faced with choices that will directly affect Georgia’s kids,” Superintendent Woods said. “Because of the students who serve on this council, I’m better able to make sound, informed decisions. I deeply value their input and involvement.”
These four CCSD students will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the School Board’s Oct. 18 meeting.
