Stars and Scholar-Athletes

Congratulations to JoJo Moss, chosen as this year’s STAR student at Hillcrest because he scored a 31 on the ACT, the highest score in the senior class. According to the Mississippi Economic Council website, “The STAR Student will be asked to designate his or her STAR Teacher. The STAR teacher should be one of his or her elementary or secondary classroom teachers (active, former, or retired). The teacher selected is, in the STAR Student’s opinion, the person who has made the greatest contribution to the student’s scholastic achievement.” JoJo chose Mrs. Lindsey Noble as his STAR Teacher.

Congratulations also to Katie Martin, selected to be this year’s WAPT Blitz 16/BankPlus Scholar Athlete for Hillcrest. The annual banquet was held April 23 to highlight students from around the Jackson Metro area for their hard work in the classroom as well as in athletics.
