The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition
(STAR)program honors Georgia's highest achieving high school
seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in
their academic development.
To obtain the STAR nomination, high school seniors must have
the highest score on any single test date of the three-part SAT
taken through the November test date of their senior year and be
in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on
grade point average. This year’s STAR student is Mitchell Johns,
who scored 2380 on the SAT and is headed to Harvard College next
year. Mitchell selected Kelly Ingle as his STAR teacher for all
the help she gave him in the Advanced Research and Internship
classes. Congratulations to Mitchell and Ms. Ingle on this great
