Denzel Howard, a John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School junior, has been selected to serve on State Superintendent Richard Woods’ 2023-24 Student Advisory Council.
“As a student advisory council member, Denzel is one of four representatives from the CSRA
who will share his voice on educational policies that directly affect him and his peers,” said
Kenneth Bradshaw, Richmond County Superintendent of Schools, in a news release from the Richmond County School System. “We are proud to have Denzel be an ambassador for our school system as he participates in discussions and service projects.”
Howard joins 69 students from across Georgia who will meet with Woods four times throughout the school year to provide feedback on the impact of state policies in the classroom. During his time on the council, Howard plans to develop a community service project for the Augusta community and wants to focus on issues affecting his peers.
“One issue that I would like to tackle is mental health-based,” Howard said. “I think once we
get to the bottom of why so many students are feeling depressed and anxious, we are able to
solve a problem that will better so many lives in the state.”
