A Star Student and Teacher

Jan 22, 2014 | Uncategorized, Upper School News

The PAGE Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, is in its 56th year, and is sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation, The Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Georgia Department of Education. To obtain the STAR nomination, 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.
When the STAR student is named they will then choose a STAR teacher to share in this recognition. The students and their teachers are honored by their schools and receive special recognition in their communities from more than 165 statewide civic organizations and businesses that serve as local sponsors of the STAR program.
A more formal certificate and recognition will be made here at Mount Vernon at the Honors Assembly at the end of the School year, but for now Mount Vernon would like to announce the 2014 PAGE Star Student for our School, is Mr. Joseph Martin.
Joseph has selected Dr. Tom Rounds, Head of grade 12 and Upper School science teacher, as his STAR teacher to stand alongside him for this honorable program. This is Dr. Rounds second year selected as a Star Teacher. Congratulations Joseph Martin & Dr. Tom Rounds!
