Special to the News

Lindsay Mason has been named the 2010 STAR student at Bryan County High School. The award is sponsored locally by the Pembroke Lions Club. Lindsay, who is the daughter of Thomas and Angie Mason of Ellabell, chose her 11th grade AP English and Composition teacher D’Lee Pollock as her STAR teacher.

The PAGE Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, in its 52nd year, is sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, and the Georgia Department of Education. Since its inception, the STAR program has honored more than 21,500 students and the teachers they have selected as having had the most influence on their academic success. To obtain the STAR nomination, high school seniors must have the highest score on a single test date on the three-part SAT and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.

STAR begins each year in participating high schools throughout Georgia when the STAR student is named and chooses a STAR teacher to share in this recognition. The students and their teachers are honored by their schools and receive special recognition in their communities from one of the more than 165 statewide civic organizations and businesses that serve as local sponsors of the STAR program. Students then compete for school system titles, and those winners compete for region honors. Region winners compete for the honor of being named State PAGE STAR Student.

The mission of the PAGE Foundation is to recruit, develop, retain, and recognize outstanding teachers for all Georgia students. Through its sponsorship of Future Educators Association of Georgia (FEA Georgia), Student Professional Association of Georgia (SPAGE), PAGE Foundation Scholarships and professional learning, the PAGE Foundation works to recruit capable people to the teaching profession and provide career-long professional learning opportunities for educators.




STAR is one of several programs of academic excellence sponsored by the Foundation Other academic competitions include the PAGE Georgia Academic Decathlon (GAD) and PAGE Academic Bowl for Middle Grades.
