September 19-- Two J.R. Trippe Middle School students have been selected to the 2019-2020 GaDOE State Superintendent Student Advisory Council according to Principal Sandy Reid. Zoey Alvarez and Andrew Norfleet were selected from more than 1,000 students who applied for the Student Advisory Council this year. "It is an honor to have been selected and these two are perfect candidates to represent the Vidalia City School System and community," said Reid.
The State Superintendent of Schools Student Advisory Council is a group of students in grades 7-12 who discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia. Members meet three times throughout the school year with State Superintendent Woods and are advisors who act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia. Members were chosen by a committee of Georgia Department of Education representatives based on the applicant's response to questions.
