Taylor selected as STAR Student at Neshoba Central


Margaret Elizabeth Taylor has been named Neshoba Central’s STAR Student for the 2023-24 school year by the Mississippi Economic Council Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program. 

The program will be held April 4 at the Clyde Muse Center in Pearl.

STAR Students are selected on the basis of academic excellence. 

Both American College Test scores and scholastic averages are compared to determine the school’s STAR Student, explained Vickie Powell of Jackson, senior vice president of foundations. 

“The STAR program encourages and promotes academic achievement among Mississippi’s high school seniors,” she said. 

Each STAR Student is asked to designate a STAR Teacher, the teacher who has made the greatest contribution to the student’s scholastic achievement. Ms. Anne Fisackerly was designated as STAR Teacher.

More than 550 STAR Students and STAR Teachers will receive recognition from MEC’s Education Celebration. 

The top 20 STAR Students — The ALL-STAR Scholars — will receive scholarships and their STAR Teacher will receive awards provided by the Kelly Gene Cook, Sr. Charitable Foundation.

The highlight of the Education Celebration will be the naming of the Mississippi ALL-STAR Scholar for 2023-24 school year, winner of the coveted $24,000 Cook Foundation Scholarship.
