Luncheon to honor STAR students

2/14/2014, 6 a.m.

DeKalb STAR Students and their teachers will be honored by the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce on Feb. 27 at its annual STAR Luncheon at the Double Tree Hotel in Atlanta.

The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program honors the state’s highest achieving high school seniors and the teachers who have most instrumental in their academic development. It recognizes high school seniors who have the highest SAT score in their graduating class and meet all the other program requirements.

In the last 55 years, the STAR Program has honored more than 23,500 high school seniors who in turn choose their STAR Teachers to share in this recognition.

The Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation, Inc. was selected in 1994 by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce to coordinate the Georgia’s STAR program in association with the Chamber and the Georgia Department of Education.

The 2014 STAR Awards Luncheon honors students and teachers from DeKalb County Schools and City of Decatur Schools.

It is also open to family members, school administrations and event and scholarship sponsors.

Registration starts at 11:15 a.m. and the luncheon takes place at 11:45 a.m.

The hotel is at 4156 Lavista Road.
