Carrollton High School is one of fourteen schools in Georgia participating in the Secretary of State’s Ambassador Program. The goal of the program is to provide high school students an opportunity to engage as leaders within their school and community. Through this program, they will gain leadership experience by learning about and teaching Georgia civics to their peers, learning about voter registration, and promoting and encouraging other students to register to vote. They will work in a team environment to create a dialogue that gets first-time high school voters educated, excited, and engaged about elections.
The Ambassador Program Kick-Off was held Wednesday, January 13 at the State Capitol where the students were addressed by Secretary of State Brian Kemp and his staff. The students attended workshops on how to be a successful Ambassador and the importance of voter registration. The program also included a tour of the Capitol.
The Carrollton High School students serving as Ambassadors are: Holley Dalton, Leigh Anne Turner, Anthony Zheng, Hannah Brooks, Thomas Culwell, Max Schoenfeld, Kirby Criswell, Jill Fazio and Tim Green. The team of students will work together to educate their peers about voter awareness by planning and participating in various school and civic events throughout the semester.
