JACKSON, Miss. (WTOK) - Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann has formed an Administrator Advisory Council made up of public school personnel.

Hosemann said last year he wanted to have input from Mississippi’s public educators when considering legislation impacting public schools.

“For Mississippi to succeed, our public schools must succeed,” said Hosemann, who plans to name a separate advisory council of teachers in early February. “This requires us to listen to educators and address their needs. I look forward to working with this group and other administrators to continue advancing student achievement and supporting our schools.”

Among the members are Dr. Howard Savage, principal of Quitman High School and Cody Killen, principal of Neshoba Central Middle School, both representing the East Central region.
