DECATUR, Ga., – March 26, 2016 – The DeKalb Chamber of Commerce held the annual PAGE STAR Student and Teacher Awards to honor high achieving students and teachers in DeKalb County’s public and private schools. Students and teachers from 26 area schools were recognized.

The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) Program honors Georgia’s outstanding high school seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in their academic development. During the past 58 years, the STAR Program has honored more than 23,500 high school seniors who have in turn chosen their STAR Teachers to share in this recognition.

DeKalb Chamber also recognized the system winners from DeKalb County School District (DCSD) and City Schools of Decatur (CSD) who will go on to compete in the PAGE STAR regional event.
