Jefferson Davis County High School senior Latayzha Lockhart has been selected to the Mississippi State Superintendent of Education Student Advisory Council. The Council’s purpose is to provide a forum for Mississippi’s students to offer diverse perspectives to the State Superintendent of Education Carey Wright. Students from different backgrounds, school size and regions in Mississippi will be able to share their opinions and offer advice about educational opportunities and policy in Mississippi with Dr. Wright. The selected students will act as liaisons between MDE and public-school students from across the state. More than 200 students from across the state completed the initial application step, and 76 submitted complete applications. Among those, 44 students were selected.

“This is a great honor. We are so proud of Latayzha, and we know that she will represent us well,” said Jefferson Davis County Superintendent Ike Haynes. Pictured with Lockhart is JDC Superintendent Ike Haynes.
