Two local high school students have been named to the state superintendent's student advisory council.
McCall Butler, a student at Troup High School and Travis Perry, a student at Spencer High School, were two of 53 students chosen to serve on the council.
The council meets three times a year with state school superintendent Kathy Cox. They discuss how state policies are having an impact on the classroom and other education-related issues.
More than 550 students from 108 school districts applied to be a member of the council by filling out an application and answering essay questions. Students were chosen based on the strength of their essay answers.
Never miss a local story.
The first meeting of the Student Advisory Council will be held November 9 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
