The Kentucky Department of Education’s (KDE’s) School Counselor Advisory Council (SCAC) was joined by  the Commissioner’s Student Advisory Council (SAC) during the counselors’ June 2 meeting to discuss the students’ advocacy work around mental health. 

“It’s a couple tough years and school’s tough enough on students to begin with. We want to make sure students have an environment that’s conducive to learning that allows them to rest their brain and truly work to better themselves mentally so they can better themselves academically,” said Roxanne Lockard, a recent graduate of Craft Academy (Great Crossing High School, Scott County).
