McDONOUGH — Two Henry County students have been named to the 2020-21 Student Advisory Council.
Jordyn Pruitt, a junior at Dutchtown High School and senior Khlanna Green from Stockbridge High School were selected by State School Superintendent Richard Woods.
As part of the council, Pruitt and Green will join 62 other students from across the state to meet with Woods throughout the school year to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom.
Students were chosen from a pool of 1,400 applicants based on the strength of their essay answers, which focused on the ideas for public education, according to the Georgia Department of Education.
“Now more than ever, it is essential that I receive feedback directly from students on their educational experience,” Woods said. “My Student Advisory Council has been an invaluable part of my decision-making process for the last six years, and I am looking forward to meeting with the 2020-21 council soon.”
The Student Advisory Council will hold its first meeting virtually on Nov. 5.
