Vickie Morris, Thomasville City School Superintendent, reported Dec. 13 to the Thomasville City Board of Education that she had recently met with the Student Council from Thomasville High School.

“They told me lots of great information,” she said. “It was a very good meeting.” Morris told the students, if they had important information, they could call her, email her or drop by her office. “My door is open to all of them.
“They are very concerned about the report card grade from the state and what they can do to help make it better,” she said. “They all had plenty of ideas.” The Thomasville High School recently received a “C” grade from the state. The entire school system received a “B” grade.
“I have said this for a long time. We need to listen to our students. If we listen to the kids more and follow their lead, things will work out for the best.” Morris hopes to have future meetings with the council.
