TCCHS student named to Advisory Council

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - State Superintendent Dr. John Barge named 50 students from around Georgia to his 2011-2012 Student Advisory Council.

Among those named was Nicolas Maxwell Carter, a student at Thomas County Central High School.

As members of the council, these students will meet throughout the school year to advise the Department of Education on how state polices are impacting the classroom.

"My main focus was about how teachers often kind of neglect students as personal people. And most of the time students get treated as just another face and a desk rather than someone who's trying to learn and grasp on to knowledge," said Carter.

The first meeting of the Student Advisory Council will held on November 1st at the Georgia Department of Education in Atlanta.
