Sophomore Named to Advisory Council
Kaeli Riggs, a current sophomore at Seneca High School and a participant in the Education Career Academy, has been named to the Next-Generation Student Advisory Council, a group that provides input to Kentucky Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt. The purpose of the council is to provide feedback from Kentucky students to the Commissioner of Education and to engage student leaders in learning by doing. This group will meet with Commissioner Pruitt and Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) staff, both in person and virtually, to discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting public school students throughout Kentucky and to provide valuable feedback -- from a student perspective -- on critical issues impacting Kentucky students and schools. The Next-Generation Student Council is a year-long program for Kentucky public school students in grades 10-12. The council is comprised of a diverse group of students with ideas and thoughtful insight into how public schools and student achievement can be improved. Congratulations Kaeli! We know you will represent us well!
