Wednesday, April 19, 2017

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) named 183 seniors as 2017 Georgia Scholars. Eight are from Whitfield County Schools. They are:

  • Megan Climer (NHS)
  • Hannah Conway (CCH)
  • Damary Gutierrez Hernandez (CCH)
  • Amanda Jones (NHS)
  • Bryce Jones (CCH)
  • Emily Lugthart (NHS)
  • Steven McMullen (NHS)
  • Jacob Smith (NHS)

“I offer my sincere congratulations to each of our 2017 Georgia Scholars,” said State School Superintendent Richard Woods. “These students have exemplary academic performance but they’ve also gained soft skills by taking on leadership roles within their schools and communities. I am confident we will hear great things about their accomplishments in the near future.”

Georgia Scholars hail from 43 of Georgia’s public and private high schools. With eight Georgia Scholars, Whitfield County Schools is ranked among the top eight public school districts in the state.

Through the Georgia Scholar program, the Department identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life. The program is coordinated by the Department’s Excellence Recognition Office and through local coordinators in each public school system and in private schools throughout the state. Each Georgia Scholar receives a seal for his or her diploma.

Students eligible for Georgia Scholar recognition are high school seniors who exhibit excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities, and in the home. Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during the four years of high school; who performed excellently in all courses; who successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and in their communities; and who have assumed active roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools.
