Secretary of State Brian Kemp created the Secretary of State’s Ambassador Program for high school students in 2016, and The King's Academy was one of  only 14 high schools throughout Georgia selected to participate in the inaugural launch.

Students who serve as Ambassadors promote civic engagement, voter registration, and volunteerism in their schools by speaking to classes and assemblies, hosting voter registration drives, and volunteering in their communities. The goal of these activities is to educate high school students about the government and show them how to become engaged through voter registration or volunteer opportunities. The program prepares Ambassadors for this work by providing students with training materials and guidance for public speaking, working in a team environment, time management, problem solving, and professionalism.

The Secretary of State's Student Ambassador Program is designed for 10th-12th grade students.  Each school is allowed to nominate up to 9 students to represent their school.  In the fall each group attends a regional Kick-Off event where they receive all the training and resources that they will need to be successful in the program.  Then they take what they have learned back to their communities.  The students decide as a team what their goals are for their school and the means of achieving them.  Throughout the year, the teams will organize and carry out various events. For each event that they conduct, they receive points towards our statewide competition. The school with the most points at the end of the year is recognized at the State Capitol. 

For questions, please contact TKA Sponsor Elby Gonsoulin.
