A Columbus High senior has been named to the state superintendent's student advisory council.
Hannah Liss was one of 50 students selected from around the state. Liss and other students on the council will meet with State Superintendent Brad Bryant three times during the school year to advise the superintendent and the Georgia Department of Education on how state policies are impacting students and the classroom.
More than 450 students applied to be a member of the council. Members were selected based on the strength of essay answers, as well as school and community involvement.
The first meeting of the student advisory council is Thursday, October 25 at the Georgia Department of Education office in Atlanta.
