2019 STATE PAGE STAR STUDENT AND STATE PAGE STAR TEACHER
The announcement came at the State PAGE (Professional Association of Georgia Educators) STAR Banquet, on Monday, April 29, 2019, at the Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta in Duluth, GA. Fifteen PAGE STAR Student Region Winners were finalists in the culminating event of the annual STAR (Student Teacher Achievement Recognition) program for high school seniors. Among the 15 finalists, six scored 1600 on one administration of the SAT, and all were in the top 10 percent or top 10 of their class.
The search for the State PAGE STAR Student began earlier this school year with the naming of a record-breaking 609 local STAR Students from each of the participating public and independent high schools across the state. In turn, those STAR students then recognized the teacher who had the most influence on their academic success as their STAR Teacher.
