Franklin Academy’s Student Council is a group of elementary (4th/5th) and middle school students that have either been elected or appointed in the Fall. Every member serves on a committee, such as; Citizenship Development, Community/Environmental Service, Faculty and Staff Relations, Membership Motivation, Public Relations, School Service, and School Spirit. Members enjoy planning various activities/events and turn in their favorites/most successful projects to compete at a district and state level against other middle/high schools. Once a month middle school members get to attend county/district meetings to collaborate with other middle/high school Student Councils. They have formal Robert’s Rule of Order meetings, teambuilding, and guest speakers with the main message dealing with an aspect of leadership.
