ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

More than 1,500 students from across South Mississippi are at Jones County Junior College this Tuesday and Wednesday attending an annual Senior High-Middle School Student Workshop.

Students from more than three dozen schools are participating.

It's giving children involved in student councils a chance to learn new leadership and communication skills.

"It's an opportunity for the college to give back to student council and not only that, provide leadership opportunities for our college students on campus," said Dr. Samuel Jones, dean of Student Affairs at JCJC. 

"I take things that we learn from the classes and I bring them back and we use it in our student council meetings," said Megan Daniels, a student at Prentiss High School. 

Tuesday, students from about 18 high schools participated. On Wednesday, children from 16 middle and 8 elementary schools are scheduled to attend.
