2016 STAR STUDENT AND TEACHER: HALEY SISSEL AND ASHLEY BENTLEY

Haley Sissel of Windsor Academy was honored as one of Bibb County’s STAR Students, and she chose Mrs. Ashley Bentley as her STAR Teacher. They were recognized at a banquet at Middle Georgia State University in Macon.

The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition program, an initiative of the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, is mostly based on the highest three-part SAT score in a single sitting from a student at one of Bibb County’s public and private high schools. There also is a class-ranking requirement. Each school winner selected his or her STAR teacher. Congrats!
