ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County's STAR student was back in class Monday at Westover High.

Juliette Hu won the county award Friday after she scored 2380 on the SAT. 

Hu is deciding whether to attend The California Institute of Technology or Georgia Tech to pursue a career in computer science, linguistics or aeronautical engineering. 

On Monday, she thanked her principal, teachers and family. 

"It is truly an honor. It's actually really overwhelming. I'm still feeling lightheaded from the entire ordeal. Honestly I didn't expect for this great honor to be bestowed upon me," said Hu.

STAR nominations are based on SAT scores and GPA.

Hu is the first Westover student to win the county award in five years.

She will now compete for the state award.
