STAR student named at luncheon

February 24, 2004

Albany- One senior from each of the six high schools was named a STAR student.

Each not only has the highest SAT score, but is in the top 10% of their class. Albany High School's Kevin Johnson was named the system's STAR student, and he chose his literature teacher, Leigh Shepherd, as the STAR Teacher.

"I don't think there's really much that separates us. I guess I just got lucky on the SAT," JOhnson says.

"I feel that I did my best to support Kevin and his endeavors and all my students. I really feel that Kevin is the star and not I. He's the one that got the score. I'm just glad that I was able to give him the background that he needed," adds Shepherd.

In addition to his new award, Johnson will go on to compete for honors in the regional STAR program.
