CCSD Recognizes STAR Students and Teachers

The STAR (Student Teacher Achievement Recognition) student honor is awarded to one high school senior from each Georgia public and private high school, who has the highest score on any single test date of the SAT taken through the November test date of senior year and who ranks in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of his/her class based on grade point average. Each honored student is invited to select his or her favorite teacher to be named that school’s STAR teacher.

STAR students compete for school system titles, and the overall CCSD STAR student is a tie between Riley McCready of Etowah HS and Jordan Vaughn of Sequoyah HS. Riley selected Etowah HS science teacher John Murnan as her STAR teacher; Jordan selected Adam Lundy from her former high school in California.
System STAR students compete for region-wide honors in the 12 STAR Regions, and region winners compete for the statewide title, sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, as well as scholarships and awards. STAR teachers continue with their STAR students at every level of the program.
