Davidson announces top students:
Star Student – Selena (Nina) Burris – highest SAT score for the class of 2014 and must be ranked in top 10 or top 10% of the class. Nina selected Dr. Timothy Powell as her Star Teacher because he greatly influenced and positively impacted her.
Salutatorian – Megan Walden – second highest cumulative GPA for the class of 2014
National Merit Finalist – Selena (Nina)Burris
She is one of 15,000 students recognized from the pool of 1.5 million PSAT test takers. It is highly likely that she will be awarded a scholarship in addition to this commendation. She is one of 3 students from the city of Augusta to be named a Finalist.
On Saturday in Athens at the All-State Band Convention, Mr. Cannady was inducted as a member of Phi Beta Mu International Bandmaster Fraternity. (This is a very prestigious honor and nominated candidates must be approved by more than 95 percent of the membership to become a member. Additionally, if a member knows a candidate is morally, ethically, or financially unsound, they must vote “No” regardless of his success as a band director.)
Phi Beta Mu is an international bandmaster fraternity which honors superior achievement, moral integrity, and the promotion of the development of bands. This is a great honor for Mr. Cannady as well as an honor to our band program and our school.
