ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Georgia's STAR student, who is from Albany, is getting more statewide recognition.

Westover graduate Michael Lomax leaves for Yale University next month, but in September, the PAGE foundation, which is the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, is flying him back from Yale to Atlanta to speak before successful business leaders in the state, about the importance and value of a good education.

He said, "I don't know what I'm really going to be able to offer other than one award to those leaders that have made millions and millions of dollars and done such important things for the state. I'm just going to try to be as honest and genuine as I can and hopefully I'll rub some people the right way."

Lomax won Dougherty County, regional, then state STAR student. He's attending Yale on a full scholarship.
