Senior Jessica Lao has been named Westminster's STAR Student for 2019.
Jessica selected Upper School English teacher Reanna Ursin as her STAR teacher.
The PAGE Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program—celebrating its 61st 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 27,000 high school seniors who have in turn chosen their STAR Teachers to share in this recognition.
