The Rotary Club of Columbus will recognize Muscogee County School District's STAR students and teachers at its meeting at noon today in the dining gallery of the Columbus Convention and Trade Center.
The Student-Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program honors the state's outstanding high school seniors and teachers who have been instrumental in their academic development. It is sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Georgia Department of Education.
Students are chosen based on their SAT scores and class standing.
Students from Brookstone, Calvary Christian, Columbus, Hardaway, Kendrick, Northside, Shaw, Spencer and St. Anne Pacelli will be recognized. The rotary will also announce the system-wide STAR students who will go on to compete at the regional level.
