STAR students and teachers were recognized the district luncheon on the Georgia Southern University campus recently.

STAR (Student Teacher Achievement Recognition) students from each county are determined by the highest SAT score. Effingham County’s 2007-08 STAR student Jessica Friday is a senior at Effingham County High School.

Each STAR student also chooses a teacher they believe has had the greatest impact on their education to be their STAR teacher. Friday’s choice was her calculus teacher, Wendy Fears.

The STAR program is sponsored statewide by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators and locally by the Rotary Club of Effingham.
