The Cherokee County School District is celebrating 229 exemplary high school juniors as Superintendent’s Key Scholars!  

These top students were recognized, through the 17th Annual Superintendent’s Key Scholar Recognition Ceremony on Thursday night, for scores achieved on the PSAT that rank them in the top 10% nationwide.  (NOTE: A video of the ceremony is online here: Superintendent’s Key Scholar Awards Ceremony.)

“Our Key Scholars are among the nation’s brightest high school students – the top 10% - and we’re deeply proud of each of them for this admirable academic success,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “Recognizing academic excellence is incredibly important to our School Board and to me, and this annual event is another example of our commitment to celebrating our students’ achievements.  Thank you also to our teachers, who guide these students over their education with us to learn as much as possible in preparation for future success.”

Each honoree will receive an embroidered “Key Scholar” letter-jacket patch.  Students who scored at the 95th percentile or greater on the PSAT in their sophomore of junior year also will receive a special cord to wear at their graduation ceremony.  The Key Scholar program costs are sponsored by Cobb EMC and LGE Community Credit Union, CCSD Partners.

The Key Scholar Program is a districtwide academic recognition program, with recognition opportunities beginning with the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) search program in elementary school and leading up to National Merit Scholarship recognition in the high school senior year.
