Nine students from Student Leadership Johns Creek will represent Johns Creek as part of Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s Ambassadors Program. They attended a kick-off with students from the metro Atlanta area in September where they will be trained in how to register Georgians to vote.
The goal of the Secretary of State’s 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.
According to Governor Brian Kemp “This generation is the future of America. It is important that you and your friends become registered to vote to make sure your voice is represented in your government.”
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.
