Shankar, Hoffman named Georgia scholars

alt


Two Northgate High School students have been honored as 2013 Georgia Scholars by the Georgia Department of Education.

Northgate High School seniors Bharath Shankar and Nathan Hoffman were among a small number of Georgia students who were honored with the distinction this year. The Georgia Scholar Program is an effort by the Georgia Department of Education to identify and recognize high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life.

The program is coordinated by the Office of School Improvement of the Georgia Department of Education through local coordinators in each public school system and private schools in the state.

To be selected as a Georgia Scholar, a student must be a graduating high school senior who exhibits excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities and in the home. The criteria are extremely strict, such that only 115 seniors in the entire state qualified for the honor.

Qualifying students must present evidence of having carried an exemplary course load in the four years of high school, performed excellently in all courses, demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, successfully participated in interscholastic events of the school or community, shown evidence of leadership in a youth activities outside the school and assumed an active role in extracurricular activities sponsored by the school.

Each Georgia Scholar receives a seal for his diploma.
