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 on September 6th at the Georgia World Congress Center 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 2019-20 Student Leadership Johns Creek Secretary of State Ambassadors are: Ann Philip, Caelyn DeSouza, Jayla Melvin, Kian Kermani, Lydia Grace Logan, Olivia Shaffer, Omeed Kalan, Tina Dong and Yasmin Shalim. Cherie Sang, a 2018-19 Ambassador will serve as the team's assistant director.
Beating nearly 200 teams statewide in 14 congressional delegations, we are proud to announce that the Student Leadership Johns Creek Student Ambassadors have won their second consecutive Secretary of State Ambassador's competition. Congratulations to our student leaders for a job well done.
