Congratulations to Caroline Taylor; Lee County’s 2019 STAR Student! She chose Mrs. Kelly Dowling, as her STAR Teacher. Mrs. Dowling taught Caroline 12th grade AP Calculus.
The Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Georgia Department of Education sponsor the Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program. Students are selected on the basis of their SAT scores (during one test administration), class standing and scholastic averages.
