Congratulations to Columbia Holeman and David Burkette Moulder III, who have been named Jackson Academy’s STAR students for the 2018-2019 school year by the Mississippi Economic Council M.B. Swayze Foundation, sponsor of the Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program. This prestigious award is granted on the basis of academic excellence demonstrated through ACT scores and scholastic averages.

Established by the Mississippi Economic Council in 1965, the purpose of the STAR program is to recognize outstanding students and teachers in Mississippi. Each STAR student selects a STAR teacher. Columbia designated Chair of the Foreign Language Department Judy McKeigney, and Burkette chose Chair of the Science Department Sarah Shaw. These teachers made a significant contribution to Columbia and Burkette’s scholastic achievements.

The students and teachers will be honored during the annual Education Celebration on April 11, 2019, at the Jackson Convention Complex in downtown Jackson. Mississippi’s ALL-STAR Scholar for 2018-2019 will be named at the celebration, winning the $24,000 Cook Foundation Scholarship.
