‘Next Generation’ students needed for council

GLASGOW — Juniors and seniors throughout Kentucky’s public schools are invited by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to apply for a membership in the Next-Generation Student Council, according to a KDE news release.

The year-long council program is an advisory group that provides input and feedback to Education Commissioner Dr. Terry Holliday, and four students will be selected to fill the open positions.

The purpose of the council is to provide valuable feedback from students throughout the state and to engage student leaders in a learning-by-doing model.

The group will meet with Holliday as well as KDE staff members, both in person and virtually, to discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Kentucky and provide feedback — from a student’s point-of-view — on critical issues that impact the state’s students and schools, the release stated.

Lisa Gross, division of communications and community engagement director for the KDE, said the council serves as a bridge between Kentucky’s schools and the KDE.
