BCHS STAR Student and Teacher

Brooks County High School Principal Chris Chastain recently announced Amari Miller has been named the STAR Student for the Class of 2021. Chastain stated, “Amari Miller is one of our
quietest, hardest working seniors in the class of 2021. He aspires to be one of the best at each
of his endeavors, which includes, academics, music and soccer. I am sure Mr. Miller will be
successful at the next level and continue toward greatness as he enters the next few phases of
life! We wish him the best of luck in his next phase at the college of his choice.” Miller plans to
attend Georgia State University after graduation to study Film and Media. His career goal is to
become a film director. Miller chose Ms. Anya Cain as the STAR teacher. Cain has been a math
teacher at Brooks County High School for ten years. “Ms. Cain is one of our best teachers and
is currently finishing her tenure as our Teacher of the Year. She manages to build quality,
professional relationships with her students in order to encourage each and every student to
aspire for greatness, especially in mathematics. She has worked with Amari all four years, which explains his desire to promote her as his STAR teacher.” said Chastain.

The STAR (Student Teacher Achievement Recognition) program is sponsored by the
Professional Association of Georgia Educators and honors Georgia’s high achieving high school seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in their academic development. To obtain the STAR nomination, high school students must have the highest score on any single test date of the SAT taken through the November test of their senior year and be in the top ten percent of top ten students of their class based on grade point average. Miller and Cain will now advance to the region competition of the STAR program.
