Cole Wilson Named Salutatorian Co-Star Student

Congratulations to Cole Wilson for being named Salutatorian and Co-Star Student of the Senior Class of 2019. The Salutatorian is the honor student with the second highest numerical average. The STAR student is awarded to those seniors who are in the top 10% of their class and have garnered the highest SAT score on a single test date. Each year STAR students are asked to select a STAR teacher who has made the most significant contribution to their scholastic development. Cole selected Brian Hall as his STAR teacher. Mr. Hall stated “Seeing Cole go from a quiet, reflective middle schooler to a public speaker, videographer and editor, and champion writer is a definite reminder in the potential of everyone. I have no doubt that Cole will accomplish anything he sets out to do as he prepares to attend Georgia Tech in the fall.”

Cole is very active in his school and community. He is the president of the National Honor Society, band captain of the Blue Wave Marching Band, and a State Champion in Argumentative Essay Writing for Literary. In addition, he also competed on the Rifle Team, Academic Bowl Team, and served as the lighting technician for many of the school plays.

Cole will be attending Georgia Tech next year and plans to major in Chemical Engineering. He plans to pursue a master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering.

Congratulations to Cole on such an amazing accomplishment!
