Eight Cherokee County School District high school seniors have been named 2017 Georgia Scholars!

Through the Georgia Scholar program, the Georgia Department of Education identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in all phases of school and community life including carrying “exemplary course loads” and excelling in all courses, successfully participating in inter-scholastic and extra-curricular activities. Only 183 graduating seniors from schools across Georgia will receive the honor, which includes a seal for his or her diploma.

The CCSD honorees are: from Creekview HS, Austin Griffin, Michelle McCord, Austin Miles, Jack Pace and Haleigh Streak; from River Ridge HS, Cecelia Fornuto; from Sequoyah HS, Daniel Gordon; and from Woodstock HS, Abbey Barrett.

“I offer my sincere congratulations to each of our 2017 Georgia Scholars,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “These students have exemplary academic performance but they’ve also gained soft skills by taking on leadership roles within their schools and communities. I am confident we will hear great things about their accomplishments in the near future.”
