Two Coweta students named to State Superintendent’s Advisory Council

Anna Poole, NorthgateTwo Coweta County School System high school students have been chosen to serve on the state School Superintendent’s 2017-2018 Student Advisory Council.

Northgate High School student Anna Poole and Newnan High School student Hannah Marriaga were among 142 Georgia students selected to serve on state Superintendent Richard Woods’ student council.

Throughout the school year, the middle and high school students on the council will meet with Superintendent Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom. Members of the Student Advisory Council will also discuss other issues related to education, serve as the Superintendent’s ambassadors to their respective schools, and participate in service projects to benefit schools and students.

“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.”

Members were selected from a pool of more than 1,500 students who applied to serve on the council. Students were chosen based on the strength of their essay answers, which focused on their ideas for public education as well as their community service experience. The students selected attend public schools all over the state.
