INDIANAPOLIS – An East Central High School junior has been named to the Indiana High School Athletic Association Student Advisory Committee.

Eighteen high school student-athletes from across the state will serve next school years on the committee, including East Central’s Jorgia Ferguson.

The committee receives hands-on leadership experience in various areas via several IHSAA-sponsored events as well as serving as a voice to the IHSAA staff.

The Student Advisory Committee began in 2001-02, representing the entire IHSAA membership of 407 schools.

Meeting four times annually, the committee is responsible for hosting meetings with student peers at the Fall Area Principals Meeting; assisting with the awards ceremonies at IHSAA state championship events throughout the school year; planning and administering the annual IHSAA Student Leadership Conference; and to engage in and support the activities of Special Olympics Indiana including the Unified Track & Field and Unified Flag Football State Tournaments.
