Ashley Dombroski of Northgate High School and Tricia Underwood of The Heritage School have been named 2019 Georgia Scholars.
According to the Georgia Department of Education, Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during their four years of high school, who performed excellently in all courses, who successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and in their communities and who have assumed active roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools.
Dombroski and Underwood will receive Georgia Scholar seals for their high school diplomas.
Superintendent Richards Woods said the Georgia Scholar program helps the Georgia Department of Education identify and honor high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life.
“The 2019 Georgia Scholars exemplify our mission of educating the whole child,” Woods said. “They are well-rounded students who have engaged with a wide array of educational opportunities – from traditional classroom learning to community service. I congratulate each of these students and wish them well as they embark on their next steps after high school.”
The program is coordinated by GaDOE’s Excellence Recognition office and through local coordinators in each public school system and private schools throughout the state.
