Eric is Headed to State STAR Competition!
Sherwood Christian Academy Senior Eric Bergrab was awarded the 2023 STAR Region IX winner today at a luncheon in Thomasville sponsored by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators and the PAGE Foundation! Congratulations, Eric! Eric will represent the Southwest Georgia region (17 counties) at the State PAGE STAR Competition and Banquet on April 24 in Duluth, Georgia, with a chance for a college scholarship.
Eric was recognized as Sherwood Christian Academy’s 2023 STAR Student in February at a STAR Student / Teacher luncheon sponsored by the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce. Eric selected Mrs. Vicki Davis to be his STAR Teacher, who was then recognized and awarded. Afterwards, Eric was then recognized by the Albany Chamber of Commerce as being this year’s Albany Area STAR Student! This award is given to the single student in the Albany – Dougherty County Area with the highest SAT score!
The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, now in its 65th 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 2023 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.
We are very proud of Eric and the academic excellence he exemplifies at Sherwood Christian Academy. Please join us in celebrating and congratulating Eric!
