Senior Jackson Meyer-Lee has been named 2017 PAGE STAR Student for Decatur High School and the City Schools of Decatur. Jackson, son of Elaine and Robert Meyer-Lee, selected Dr. Cara Cassell, his International Baccalaureate® (IB) Language/Literature HL 1 teacher at Decatur High School, as his STAR teacher.

STAR begins each year in participating high schools throughout Georgia when the STAR student is named and chooses a STAR teacher to share in the recognition.  The students and their teachers are honored by their schools and receive special recognition in their communities from more than 165 statewide civic organizations and businesses that serve as local sponsors of the STAR program. Students then compete for school system titles, and those winners compete for region honors.  Region winners compete for the honor of being names State PAGE STAR Student.

We are very proud of Jackson and Dr. Cassell and the academic excellence they exemplify at Decatur High School and the City Schools of Decatur.
