Program Kick-Off
On Wednesday, October 25, 2017, Dr. Joseph Gardner and several high school students
attended the annual Secretary of State’s Student Ambassador Program Kick-Off. The students
were Janea’ Clark, Drewcilla Harvey, Nicole Siphambili, Kaniyia Thomas, Jaziah Ellington,
Trevinee Edmonds, Honesty Screws, and Daejah Vicente. The goal of the Secretary of State's
Student Ambassador Program is to provide Georgia's high school students an opportunity to
engage as leaders within their schools and communities. Through the program students gain
leadership experience by engaging in Georgia civics, encouraging voter registration among their
peers and volunteering within their communities.
At the Kick-Off event, the student ambassadors receive all the training and resources that
they will need to be successful in the program. Then they take what they have learned back to
their communities. The students decide as a team what their goals are for their school and the
means of achieving them. Throughout the year, the teams will organize and carry out various
events. For each event that they conduct, they receive points towards our statewide competition.
The school with the most points at the end of the year is recognized at the State Capitol.
