Atlanta Board of Education Recognition of
The Atlanta Board of Education extends its heartfelt congratulations to the more than 400 student scholars being honored here on our special student recognition celebratory webpages. While these webpages celebrate students in dozens of categories in academics, arts, athletics and community service, we know this is a representation of the great work going on in Atlanta Public Schools.
Over the course of the 2019-2020 school year, the students represented here have earned the highest levels of district recognition or attained regional, state-wide, national or international acclaim. This level of success does not happen by accident but comes from hard work, dedication, and a commitment to excellence.
We are so proud of what these students have achieved and wanted to honor them and highlight their accomplishments. Congratulations to all of our 2019-2020 student honorees!
Hi, I’m Dr. Meria Carstarphen, the proud Superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools! It’s my pleasure to join with the Atlanta Board of Education to honor our outstanding students across the district for all of their achievements this year in academics, arts, athletics, service, and other areas.
Due to our closure for teleschooling and teleworking in light of COVID-19, we are not able to honor our students in person at our annual Special Called Board Meeting for Student Recognition this year. I hate that because I miss being able to reach out and hug you, congratulate you, and take pictures with you. Also, because of our closure, there are some academic and art competitions, sporting events, and other activities that did not occur this year.
But, we won’t let any of that stop the shine that our hard working students deserve! I want everyone to know that we commend and celebrate the hard work of all of our students. I also want to thank and celebrate all of our APS parents, caregivers and families who have worked to support our beautiful students this school year.
Now, let’s get to the fun part! Let’s celebrate and honor our students for their outstanding achievements!
