Three students from Hall County School District named Georgia Scholars for 2017

By AccessWDUN Staff

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) announced this week that a total of 183 graduating seniors from schools across Georgia have been recognized as 2017 Georgia Scholars, and three of those scholars are from the Hall County School District (HCSD). 

Jackson Kelly and Madison Stewart of Johnson High School and Ali Winiesdorffer of Flowery Branch High School have been named to list.  GaDOE said Georgia Scholars are high school seniors who have achieved excellence in both school and community life.

GaDOE describes the honorees as seniors “who exhibit excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities and in the home. Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during the 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.
