Seniors Phoebe Liu and Alan Xu have been named Westminster's STAR Students for 2018.
Phoebe selected Upper School math teacher Nurfatimah Merchant and Alan chose Upper School English teacher Jennifer Dracos-Tice as their STAR teachers.
The PAGE Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program—celebrating its 60th year—honors Georgia's highest achieving high school seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in their academic development. To obtain the STAR nomination, high school seniors must have the highest score on a single test date of the SAT and be in the top 10 percent, or top 10 students, of their class based on GPA.
The program is sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) Foundation, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Georgia Department of Education. STAR has recognized nearly 26,500 high school seniors who have in turn chosen their STAR Teachers to share in this recognition.
