State School Superintendent Richard Woods announced five students from Whitfield County Schools have been named Georgia Scholars in the 2023 Georgia Scholar Program. 

Kennedy Hughes and Liam Roche from Coahulla Creek High School and Rylei Brown, David Minter and Nathan Torbett from Northwest Whitfield High School are among the 154 graduating seniors named 2023 Georgia Scholars.

The Georgia Department of Education honors high school seniors who have achieved excellence in school and community life through the Georgia Scholar program.

“I extend my sincerest congratulations to the 2023 Georgia Scholars," Superintendent Woods said. “These 154 Class of 2023 seniors worked hard, became leaders in their schools and communities, and took advantage of the opportunities offered in Georgia public schools. I wish them continued success as they embark on their futures, including plans for after high school and beyond. I know they'll continue to make us all proud."

The five WCS Georgia Scholars carried exemplary course loads during their four years of high school, performed excellently in all courses, successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and communities, and assumed leadership roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools. #OneWhitfield
