DeKalb Chamber Hosts DeKalb County PAGE STAR Awards
On March 8, 2017, the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual PAGE STAR Student and Teacher Awards that honors 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 59 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.
During the program, DeKalb Chamber presented the annual $1,000 Alonzo L. McDonald, Sr. Scholarship to a high school student who made a perfect score on the SAT. Also, the Chamber 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.
Sponsors include Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Georgia United Credit Union, DeKalb County School District, Peach State Credit Union, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Consolidated Copier Services.
