Simpson County School District (SCSD) welcomed 17 student representatives to its new Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council on Wednesday, May 25.
Comprising two to four students from seven of the district’s schools, the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council was created to provide students a platform to share feedback, experiences and perspectives on a variety of issues affecting their schools and peers.
SCSD hosted the council at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson for their first meeting. During the meeting, students discussed their school experiences and provided suggestions for improvement. They also had an opportunity to tour the Co-Lin campus, learn more about its career and technical education programs, and meet with Co-Lin’s executive vice president Dr. Dewayne Middleton.
“I think it’s important that everybody has a voice; and because we are here to serve students, we should be listening to their voices as well,” said SCSD Superintendent Toriano Holloway.
The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council will meet twice a year with the district’s superintendents and will present their concerns to teachers and administrators during SCSD’s faculty convocation.
Members of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council are
• Magee Elementary School: Vella Ellmore and Jaycob Hanna
• Magee Middle School: Demetria Durr and Alex Kemp
• Magee High School: Carson Harper and Etoyriana Traxler
• Mendenhall Elementary School: Abagail Keith and Zaccari Posy
