This week, nine of Baldwin High School's best and brightest were nominated and accepted to serve as part of the Georgia Secretary of State Student Ambassador Program. The nine students receiving this honor Cara Bennett, Miles Longino, Ky’Dasia Zachary, Shania Duncan, Aaliyah Mitchem, Samantha Mutiti, Cameron Thomas, Jason Zhang and Tamia James.
The Secretary of State's Student Ambassador Program is designed for 10th-12th grade students. Each school is allowed to nominate up to 9 students to represent their school. In the fall each group will attend a regional Kick-Off event where they 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.
