Star Students and Teachers
STAR students and teachers from each Paulding County high school were recognized at the May 9, 2023 Board of Education meeting. STAR,
or Student-Teacher Achievement Recognition, is an annual program hosted by the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce and Members First
Credit Union to honor the senior student(s) at each PCSD high school with the highest SAT score who also finish in the top 10 percent of their

teacher. William Booker of North Paulding High School was named the district STAR student for 2023 as the student with the highest SAT score
in the Paulding County School District. Sandy Gamble and Shelba Bone represented the Paulding Chamber of Commerce, and Kim Fletcher and
