Officials at last week's Walker County School Board meeting honored their STAR Students and STAR Teachers.
Since its creation in 1958 by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the STAR (Student Teacher Achievement Recognition) Program has honored nearly 26,000 high school seniors who have in turn chosen their STAR Teachers to share in this recognition. The program is now administered by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation.
Across the state, more than 165 civic organizations and businesses serve as local STAR sponsors. Locally, the program for Walker County Schools and Chickamauga City Schools is sponsored by the Walker County Chamber of Commerce.

LaFayette High School STAR Teacher: Amanda Lanier
Ridgeland High School STAR Student: Taylor Williams
