GCPS student honored for work in classroom and community

May 11, 2023

     A Lanier High School student has been named a Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) 2023 Georgia Scholar. Erika Tay, a senior at Lanier High, is one of a select group of 154 graduating seniors from schools across Georgia to earn this distinguished recognition this year. The Georgia Scholar program identifies and honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life. It is coordinated by GaDOE’s Office of Communications in partnership with local school districts and schools. Each Georgia Scholar receives a seal for his or her diploma.

     Students eligible for Georgia Scholar recognition are high school seniors who exhibit excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities, and in the home. Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during their four years of high school; performed excellently in all courses; successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and in their communities, and assumed roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools.
