Recently, five students and teachers were honored during the 2020 Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) luncheon hosted by the Rotary Club. Before the event ended, Laegan Anseligh Smith from LaGrange High School, was named Troup County’s STAR Student.
Smith said, “This is quite a surprise and really exciting. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to talk about Coach Moore because of the way he teaches. It has had an impact on me. He has a way to teach lessons that will grab you and that helps the material be relatable to the students.”
The five students were:
1. Jared Nation - Callaway High (Mrs. Barbara Murphy, Teacher)
2. Baker Davis - LaFayette Christian (Mrs. Vikki Stringham, Teacher)
3. Lily Kamat - LaGrange Academy (Mrs. Janice Ingram, Teacher)
4. Laegan Smith (winner) - LaGrange High (Mr. Kenny Moore, Teacher)
5. Todd Sandiford - Troup High (Ms. Kayla Yeargin, Teacher)
