Georgia Scholars announced

Some of Fayette’s graduating seniors are among a select few in the state who will have a special seal on their diplomas when they graduate.

Five students have been named 2010 Georgia Scholars by the Georgia Department of Education. Students receiving the designation are Laura Eckhardt, Morgan Myers and Audrey Shlapak, all of Starr’s Mill High, and Christopher Murray and Shelby Threlkeld, both of Whitewater High.

A Georgia Scholar is a graduating high school senior who exhibits excellence in all phases of school life, community activities, and in the home. To be considered for the honor, a student must have a high scholastic ability, carry an exemplary course load in the four years of high school, perform excellently in all courses, successfully participate in interscholastic events of the school or community, assume an active role in extracurricular activities sponsored by the school, and exhibit good citizenship.
