Announcements: Nine SCCPSS Students Chosen as 2018 Georgia Scholars


Nine SCCPSS Students Chosen as 2018 Georgia Scholars 


Nine SCCPSS Graduating seniors have been chosen among 208 from schools across the state as 2018 Georgia Scholars.  Through the Georgia Scholar program, the Georgia Department of Education identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life. Students eligible for Georgia Scholar recognition are high school seniors who exhibit excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities, and in the home.

Georgia State Schools Superintendent Richard Woods says, “Students receiving the Georgia Scholar recognition are truly well-rounded. They’ve engaged in extracurriculars, worked hard in a broad range of academic subjects, served their communities and grown as leaders. A true education encompasses more than just the traditional ‘core’ subjects, and these students exemplify that.”

Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during their four years of high school; who performed excellently in all courses; who successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and in their communities; and who have assumed active roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools. Each Georgia Scholar receives a seal for his or her diploma.

The nine students who have achieved this honor attend three SCCPSS high schools.  Those chosen are as follows:


Herschel V. Jenkins High School

Jessie Barre

Kaleb Gauntt

Stephen Nease


Savannah Arts Academy

Andrew Royek

Thien Duy Chen

Uri Locker

Jon Saad-Falcom

Emma Traynor


Savannah Early College High School
