Sandy Creek STAR Student and Teacher

Each year the Professional Association of Georgia Educators sponsors the STAR program whereby each Georgia high school identifies its STAR Student. The STAR Student is a high school senior who has the highest SAT score in their class and is also in the top 10% of their class. Each STAR Student then selects a teacher whom they feel had a great impact on their education, and this teacher is recognized as a STAR Teacher.

This year, Dr. Evans is pleased to announce that Tochukwu "Tochi" Awachie is Sandy Creek High School’s STAR Student. Tochi selected Mrs. Dorner, her former English teacher, as her STAR Teacher. In announcing her STAR Teacher selection, Tochi commented about her dislike of writing and how Mrs. Dorner greatly impacted her attitude in a positive way. Because of Mrs. Dorner’s influence and great teaching, Tochi improved her SAT writing score by 60 points on this past October’s SAT test.

Tochi and Mrs. Dorner will be recognized at the annual Kiwanis STAR Student/Teacher recognition dinner. Congratulations on your achievements Tochi and Mrs. Dorner!
