The Rotary Clubs of Conyers and Rockdale hosted their annual luncheon in honor of the STAR Students and Teachers of the Rockdale County high schools on Feb. 15 at Conyers First United Methodist Church, 921 North Main St. N.W., Conyers.
The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, now in its 60th year, is sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE). Since its creation by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the STAR program has honored nearly 26,500 students and the teachers they have selected as having had the most influence on their academic achievement. To obtain the 2018 STAR nomination, graduating high school seniors must have the highest score on a single test date on the SAT and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.
This year’s winners are:
