Congratulations to junior Charlotte Luke, who recently received two Golden Key Scholastic Writing Awards! The first was for her critical essay “Where Women Have the Upper Hand,” and the second was for her article “Big Town, Small Landfill: How Athens, Georgia, is a Microcosm for the World’s Trash Problem,” which originally appeared in The Spartan Review. The awards are part of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Program and are presented by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers as part of its annual contest. According to their website, all works receiving Gold Keys will move on to national judging in New York City, and will be considered for national honors: Gold and Silver Medals and Special Achievement Awards.
Senior Holt Leach has been recognized as the STAR student for Athens Academy. Holt selected Julie Boyd as his STAR Teacher.
