Two from Dunbar selected for KDE Student Advisory Council

Nineteen Kentucky public high school students have been picked for the KDE Commissioner’s Student Advisory Council for the 2020-21 academic year, including two from Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. Rising junior Logan Justice and senior Lohith Tummala will provide feedback on critical issues impacting students and schools and will work with staff at the Kentucky Department of Education to develop ideas to improve and transform education.

More than 140 students across Kentucky applied for a spot on the advisory council. Incoming Commissioner Jason Glass, who starts Sept. 14, said he is excited to meet with the group. “Involving the voices of our students and empowering them in our decisions on education is critically important to me and to the future of education in Kentucky,” Glass said. “I look forward to working with these exceptional young people as we work to imagine what school could be for the Commonwealth.”
