Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School student recognized by Georgia department of education
Of the many seniors graduating across Georgia, 183 were recognized as 2015 Georgia Scholars, according to the Georgia Department of Education. Local student Anna Kim, a senior at LakeviewFort Oglethorpe High was among the ones chosen.
Through the Georgia Scholar program, the department identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life. The program is coordinated by the department’s Excellence Recognition office and 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.
“I want to congratulate our 2015 Georgia Scholars,” state school superintendent Richard Woods said. “In addition to academic success, I believe we have to teach our students about life and the importance of soft skills. These students have shown that they possess both, and I am confident we will be hearing much more about these students’ accomplishments in the near future.”
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. Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during the four years of high school, who performed excellently 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.
