Enterprise STAR Student Kinsey Dahlin and STAR Teacher Kathy McKone

Every year as part of the Student-Teacher Achievement Recognition Program, a STAR student is chosen among seniors for each high school. Those students go on to choose a STAR teacher who they feel made the greatest contribution to a student’s scholastic achievement.

Each student was recognized April 28 at the annual Education Celebration at the Jackson Convention Center in downtown Jackson. American College Test Scores and scholastic averages are compared to determine the school’s STAR Student.

STAR Students attending Mississippi State University are eligible to receive a $6,000 scholarship and students attending the University of Mississippi are eligible for an $8,000 scholarship at $2,000 a year.
