Katherine Uthoff has been named Yazoo County High School’s STAR Student.
She selected mathematics instructor Teresa Moore as STAR Teacher.
Star Students are selected on the basis of academic excellence. Both American College Test scores and scholastic averages are compared to determine the school’s STAR Student. Each STAR Student is asked to designate a STAR Teacher, the teacher who has made the greatest contribution to the student’s scholastic achievement.
Uthoff will be honored during the annual Education Celebration on April 27 at the Jackson Convention Complex in downtown Jackson.
The STAR Student program is sponsored by the Mississippi Economic Council’s M.B. Swayze Foundation.
