It was a standing room only crowd as three different groups of students were recognized at tonight's Board of Education meeting. Their success is a result of their Relentless Pursuit of a Culture of Excellence.
The first group of students to be recognized was the district level winners in the Georgia Young Authors contest. Each of these students will now go on to compete against the other schools in our RESA district and those winners will then compete for the state title.
