Four Students Are Georgia Scholars

Graduating seniors selected as Georgia Scholars embody traits of all-around excellence: high academic achievement, involvement in school activities, and participation in community service.

Four Fayette seniors have been named 2011 Georgia Scholars by the Georgia Department of Education. They are Bernadette Green, Jessica Heimann, and Lori Schachle, all from Whitewater High; and Thomas Marion, Starr’s Mill High.

Some of the requirements for Georgia Scholar consideration are a score of 1360 on the SAT or 31 on the ACT, at least a 3.75 GPA, participation in a minimum of three different interscholastic events, holding at least two different leadership positions in school-sponsored activities, and assuming a leadership role in a minimum of two different youth activities outside of school.

Local school system Georgia Scholar Program Coordinators nominate students for the recognition.
