|Congratulations to Victoria Vega and Mr. James Byrd!|
|SCA Senior Victoria Vega and US & World History SCA Teacher Mr. James Byrd were honored on February 16, 2022 in a STAR Student/Teacher luncheon sponsored by the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce at Stonebridge Golf & County Club.|
SCA’s High School Principal Kenny Roberts said of Vega, “Victoria is a diligent student with a sweet spirit. She is driven in her academic work but remains humble and approachable. The fruit of the Spirit is evident in her life. She is loved by her classmates and teachers alike.”
The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, now in its 64th year, is sponsored, administered, and promoted by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE). Since its creation by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the STAR program has honored nearly 28,500 high school seniors and the teachers they selected as having the most influence on their academic achievement. To obtain the 2022 STAR nomination, graduating high school seniors must have the highest SAT score on a single test date and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.
“Mr. Byrd is an excellent teacher. He has vast knowledge of history, government and citizenship,” said Roberts. “He is well-known among his colleagues and his students as being engaging and exciting in the classroom. Mr. Byrd, like all SCA teachers, works hard to weave God’s Word and character into every facet of his classes.”
We are very proud of Victoria and Mr. Byrd and the academic excellence they exemplify at Sherwood Christian Academy!
