Nine students from Student Leadership Johns Creek will represent Johns Creek as part of the Johns Creek Student Ambassadors Program. They have been working virtually since late July to plan many civic activities including two candidate debates on September 30 between House Seat 50 candidates Jay Lin and Angelika Kausche and on October 8 between Senate Seate 48 candidates Matt Reeves and Michelle Au. Both events will be held via Zoom and Facebook Live.
The goal of the Ambassadors Program is to provide high school students an opportunity to engage as leaders within their school and community. Through this program, the students gain leadership experience by learning about and teaching Georgia civics to their peers, learning about voter registration, and promoting and encouraging other students and residents of Johns Creek to register to vote. The SLJC students work individually and as a team to create a dialogue that gets first-time voters educated, excited, and engaged in the election process.
The 2020-21 Student Leadership Johns Creek Secretary of State Ambassadors are: Ty Davalbhakta, Omer Mujawar, Mehar Nemani, Elizabeth Douglas, Charlotte Lichtenfeld, Ashutosh Chakragiri, Aditi Mohan, Akhila Yellapragada and Janice Nam. Tina Dong, a 2019-20 Ambassador will serve as the team's assistant director.
For the third straight year the Student Leadership Johns Creek Ambassadors won their District 6 championship and came in 2nd in the State Competition. Congratulations to our student leaders for a job well done.
