Thomas County-  A Thomas County student is selected from more than 600 students statewide to serve on a state Student Advisory Council. 

Thomas County Central ninth grader Karen Head is one of 52 students across the state that will be part of Georgia school Superintendent Kathy Cox's Student Council.

Four meetings will be held throughout the year to get students' opinions on various subject from school dress codes to drop out rates. 

"I would like to get a grasp on what they're going to be asking us because I was also ask some of my friends and see what their input is and I know that my mom is a teacher so I can see it from her standpoint too," said Karen Head, TCCHS student. 

Head's first chance to give her opinion will be October 16th at Mercer University in Macon.
