ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Students and teachers were recognized for their excellence Friday afternoon, as family and friends gathered at the 55th STAR Student and Teacher luncheon.

The STAR program is sponsored by the chamber and the lions club. Each of the four finalists gave a speech about themselves and their goals.

Steven Feng was the system wide star student winner and one of his teachers was honored along with him.

"I spent a lot of Saturday mornings watching the discovery channel. Watching Steven Hawking and watching documentaries black holes and starts," said Steven Feng, Star Student.

"When I heard star teacher I didn't know what to expect and I felt really humbled," said Star Teacher Bill Spangler.

Steven Feng is debating between engineering and the medical field.

Below is a list of those who were recognized.
