The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) Program recognizes top academic students in Georgia high schools each year at the school, county, regional and state levels. To be named STAR, senior class students must have the highest score in their school in one sitting on the SAT taken through the November test date of their senior year. They must also be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.
STAR students are asked to honor the educator who most influenced their academic achievement by naming them as their STAR Teacher. STAR teachers introduced the Rotary members to their students at the luncheon, citing their scholarship and high character, as well as their extracurricular and civic accomplishments.
The Newnan Rotary Club serves as the local sponsor for the statewide STAR program, which recognizes top-achieving high school students each year.
The STAR Program is organized by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, Georgia Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Department of Education.
