Terrance Frederick: 2020 State School Superintendent's Student Advisory Council

Congratulations to Terrance Frederick, a 10th grader at Marietta High School, for being named as the MCS representative on the 2020 State School Superintendent Student Advisory Council (SAC).
 
Terrance was selected from more than 1,000 students who applied for the SAC this year. The State Superintendent of Schools' student advisory council is comprised of a group of students in grades 7-12 who discuss how decisions made at the state level are impacting students throughout the state of Georgia. ​ 
 
Members meet three times throughout the school year with State Superintendent Woods and are advisors who act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia. 
 
Students have the opportunity to apply for the advisory council at the beginning of each school year, and members are selected by a committee of Georgia Department of Education representatives based on the applicant’s response to questions.
 
Past topics discussed by the student advisory council include: the school dropout rate, student leadership, communication/messaging, the Georgia graduation rule, testing, school climate, and career, technical, and agricultural education.
 
Terrance will serve as an inspiring voice for MHS students at the state level!
