Student organizations like Morehead State University’s Student Government Association (SGA) allow students to have a real impact on the future of the University. Now, MSU is playing a role in helping the region’s high school students make an impact on their own high schools and beyond.

Morehead State hosted the Kentucky Student Council Association on Oct. 25. Formed last month, the association was created by the Fleming County High School Student Council as there is no statewide council for high school SGAs in the state of Kentucky. The Kentucky Student Council Association will bring high school leaders together for the opportunity to exchange ideas, share effective processes and procedures, and give those leaders a chance to network with students in positions of similar leadership around the Commonwealth.

Participating high schools include Fleming County High School in Flemingsburg, George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester, Greenup County High School in Greenup, Morgan County High School in West Liberty and Randall K. Cooper High School in Union. MSU’s SGA assisted in organizing the event and providing mentorship. The Kentucky Student Council Association plans to meet again in December and hopes to get more high school student councils involved across the state.

“Morehead State University's Student Government Association is happy to serve as the host site for the newly formed Kentucky Student Council Association,” said Shannon Colvin, associate director for the Office of Student Activities. “We are committed to encouraging the future of students that are engaged in the shared governance process at their high school and hopefully in the collegiate setting.”
