Two Amory Students Making a Change in Mississippi Education
By Earlie Garth The Prowl News
Over 300 students from school districts of Mississippi applied for a seat in the State Superintendent Student Advisory Council. Two students (Hannah Hoang & Will McComb) from Amory High School have been chosen to represent the state of Mississippi and have a seat at the council. Applicants filled out extensive applications that included questions about issues they see students facing in Mississippi, extracurricular activities, and qualifications for the positions. The chosen candidates will meet twice a year to discuss issues and ways to better education in Mississippi.
This year the council met through Microsoft Teams because of Covid-19. Fellow Student Body Vice-President Hannah Hoang says she is very excited to represent her school and hopes to make a difference in Mississippi education. She wanted to apply for the council because she wants to better her education and the education of her peers. Along with her is fellow Junior Class President Will McComb.
The two of them look forward to representing their high school and their state with their seat on the Mississippi State Superintendent Student Advisory Council.
