STAR Students and Teachers Recognized at Chamber Membership Breakfast

Mar 02 2018

The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce hosted the 2018 STAR Student/Teacher Achievement Recognition awards program at the March membership breakfast held at the Carroll County Schools Performing Arts Center. The local Chamber has co-hosted this program with the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) for 63 years, recognizing the top performing high school seniors with the highest SAT scores, and the teacher each student chose as having the most influence in their academic development.

During the STAR ceremony, students from the Carroll County School System, Carrollton City School System and Oak Mountain Academy were recognized.  The honorees, their teachers and parents, and school administrators heard from Carroll County School Superintendent Scott Cowart, Carrollton City Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Albertus, and Oak Mountain Academy Head of School Paula Gillispie.

STAR honorees from the Carroll County School System include: Bowdon High School student Elise Patrick and her teacher Carrie Gay; Central High School student Anna Handley and her teacher David Rooks; Mt. Zion High School student Cade Barrow and his teacher Austin Smith; Temple High School student Sydney Price and her teacher Dianne Ledford; and Villa Rica High School student Avery Hill and his teacher Cynthia Kruger.
