Rome High School junior Nebrea Askew recently was selected to serve as a member of the State School Superintendent, Richard Woods’ 2020-2021 Student Advisory Council.
According to the Georgia Department of Education’s website, it is a group of students in grades 9-12 who discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia. All students are eligible to apply; however, members are chosen by a select committee of agency representatives based on the applicant’s response to questions.
