The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce will honor STAR students and their teachers at its Progress Through People Luncheon at noon Thursday.
It will be at the Liberty County Performing Arts Center, 2140 E. Oglethorpe Highway, Flemington. Reservations were due earlier. The luncheon is sponsored by Savannah Technical College, Liberty Campus.
STAR students/teachers for Liberty County High School, First Presbyterian Christian Academy and Bradwell Institute will be honored.
The PAGE Student Teacher Achievement Recognition Program, now in its 59th year, is sponsored, administered and promoted by the Professional Association of Georgia Educations Foundation. Since its inception, the program has honored nearly 25,500 students and the teachers who they have been selected as having had the most influence on their academic achievement.
To be nominated as a STAR, high school seniors must have the highest score on a single test date on the three-part SAT and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.
The students and their teachers are honored by their schools and receive recognition in their communities from one of the more than 165 statewide civic organizations and businesses that serve as local sponsors of the STAR program. Students then compete for school system titles and those winners compete for region honors. Region winners compete for the honor of being named State PAGE STAR Student. STAR Teachers continue on with their STAR Students at every level of the program.
The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce is the local sponsor of the STAR program.
"This is always one of our favorite luncheons of the year, a real chance to honor some of the best and brightest in our public and private schools," said Leah Poole, CEO of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce/CVB.
