Camilla- Hard work over the last three years earns one south Georgia school a championship.
You don't usually see a pep rally on Monday, but students were fired up for their big reward. Governor Sonny Perdue and State School Superintendent Kathy Cox were at Mitchell County High School to present the Governor's Cup. On average, SAT scores in the last three years jumped 70 points to earn the most improved award. Perdue challenged students to continue to excel.
"We get fired up for Friday nights, we want our students to get just as fired up over the kind of academic achievements, graduation rates, graduations tests, SAT competition, this beautiful trophy we have here is one way to kind of get them inspired to do their very best let them know SAT does matter," said Governor Sonny Perdue.
The school was also given two thousand dollars to go toward SAT prep resources.
