Kristen Trainer has been named STAR STudent for the 2017-18 school year by the Mississippi Economic Council M.B. Swayze Foundation, sponsor of the Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program.  Established by the Mississippi Economic Council in 1965, the purpose of the STAR program is to recognize outstanding students and teachers in Mississippi through its Education Celebration.  This year’s theme is: Think. Grow. Succeed.

Star Students are selected on the basis of academic excellence.  Both ACT scores and scholastic averages are compared to determine the school’s STAR Student.

Kristen has selected Terri Spragins as her STAR teacher.

Kristen and Mrs. Spragins will be honored during the annual Education Celebration on April 12, 2018, at the Jackson Convention Complex in downtown Jackson.
