Student Leadership

 

The Student Council at Mississippi School for the Blind is a 15-student body organization that helps share students’ ideas, interests, and concerns with teachers and school principals. Mississippi for the Blind's Student Council includes: President, 1st and 2nd Vice President, Historian, Treasurer, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Chaplain, and 7th thru 12th Grade Representatives.  They often help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community projects, helping people in need and school reform.  Some examples of MSB's Student Council contributions are food drives, fundraisers and academic programs that engage students in learning about democracy and leadership.

The Student Ambassadors at MSB are selected from staff-nominated students who excel in the areas of academics and leadership.  They have monthly lunch meetings during which a leadership curriculum is addressed and upcoming tours are discussed.  They lead tours and act as school representatives at presentations about MSB.  They are available to present information about MSB to civic clubs and schools.
