Congratulations Sydney Pridgon

Eighth Street Middle School is proud to announce that one of our very own was selected to serve on State School Superintendent Richard Woods’s Student Advisory Council. Only 108 Georgia students were chosen for this honor. Sydney Pridgon will represent Eighth Street Middle School.  

Students were chosen based on the strength of their essay answers, which focused on their ideas for public education and the ways their own educational experience could be improved. Throughout the school year, these middle and high school students will meet with Superintendent Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom. Members of the Student Advisory Council will also discuss other issues related to education, serve as the Superintendent’s ambassadors to their respective schools, and participate in service projects to benefit schools and students.
