TCHS seniors named 2013 Georgia Scholars

TIFTON — Two Tift County High School seniors have been honored as 2013 Georgia Scholars by the Georgia Department of Education. Masoom (Amy) Chainani and Sara Johnson. They are among only 115 seniors in the entire state who have qualified for this honor, which has extremely strict criteria. 

The Georgia Scholar Program is an effort by the Georgia DOE 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 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 student must present evidence of having carried an exemplary course load in the four years of high school, performed excellently in all courses, successfully participated in interscholastic events of the school or community and assumed an active role in extracurricular activities sponsored by the school.
Eligible students must have a minimum score of 1360 on one test administration of the SAT Reading and Math or 31 on the ACT. The students also must be appointed to leadership in a minimum of two different school organizations and two different youth organizations outside of school. 
Chainani is the daughter of Nandlal and Navdeera Chainani. Johnson is the daughter of Wiley and June Johnson. Both will receive a seal for her diploma showing the 2013 Georgia Scholar designation.
