ATLANTA – The class of 2014 Georgia Scholars includes 14 Fulton County students among only 116 graduation seniors from across the state.
Through the Georgia Scholar program, the Georgia Department of Education identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life. The program is coordinated by the department’s Office of School Improvement 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.
“There is only one thing I can say about our 116 Georgia Scholars, and that is I am so proud to call each of you a student in the state of Georgia,” State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge said. “I know this honor is the result of many years of hard work, perseverance and dedication.”
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.
Barge said Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during the four years of high school, who performed at the highest levels 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.
