Among them is Michael Claxton, a graduate of T.H.R.I.V.E. Christian Academy, who plans to enlist in the Army. Meanwhile, Frank McClarin High School’s Carmen January will explore entrepreneurship upon graduating.
During their high school career, many honorees have explored unique extracurricular activities.
Ashriitha G. Shanmugam co-founded Forsyth Central High School’s Multicultural Student Union. St. Pius X Catholic High School senior Francis Maloof spends his free time focusing on giving back. Co-chairing Breath of Hope Junior Board, which benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, is just one of his volunteer positions. Amani Jones of Ola High School is one of the first three-time state champions in GHSA girls wrestling meet history.
Once again, there won’t be an in-person ceremony recognizing students in front of their peers this year. However, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution will recognize each winner in the newspaper and on AJC.com.
