Kiwanis Club announces 2022 STAR Students and Teachers

Published on: 2/23/2022

​​The Kiwanis Club of Savannah recognized the 2022 STAR Students and Teachers of the year at a luncheon February 22, 2022 at The Pirate's House.  

STAR – the Student Teacher Achievement Recognition program – recognizes Georgia’s highest achieving high school seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in those students’ academic development.   To obtain the STAR nomination, high school seniors must have the highest score on any single test date of the SAT taken through the November test date of their senior year and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.  Each high school STAR Student is asked to name his/her STAR Teacher.

Students recieved a plaque and were invited to say a few words before the crowd of more than 100 supporters.  Parents, teachers, principals and coaches all enjoyed a lunch of southern favorites, then listened to students thank their familues and teachers, and provide a glimpse into their future plans.  

The Kiwanis Club of Savannah has sponsored this local event for over four decades.
