REGION 1 STAR STUDENT AND TEACHER CROWNED
The Region 1 STAR Student and Teacher were crowned at a special ceremony hosted by the Seven Hills Rotary Club last night at Rome’s Coosa Country Club. This year’s Region 1 STAR Student is Andrew Tisinger, a senior at Bremen High School. He has chosen his AP Calculus teacher, Robin Campbell, as his STAR teacher.
STAR students are those who have achieved the highest score on the three-part SAT exam in one sitting and/or are in the top 10 percent or top 10 of their class based on GPA.
Tisinger and Campbell will proceed to the state competition, which is set for April 22nd in Atlanta.
Allene Magill, Executive Director of the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (or PAGE), the statewide sponsor of the STAR program, says that
students must be outstanding all around in order to be competitive in the statewide STAR competition.
Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Al Hodge presided over last night’s ceremony. He indicates that the Chamber is happy to celebrate excellence in education.
Upon finishing high school, Tisinger plans to attend either Tufts or Yale University. He is interested in pursuing either international relations or applied mathematics. He says that Campbell sparked his interest in math.
By the way, Tisinger scored a 2350 on the SAT. He beat out 22 other students to become the Region 1 STAR Student. Competitors won their local school’s district competition to advance to the regional level.
