Thirty-nine Gwinnett County Public Schools students have been named 2020 Georgia Scholars by the Georgia Department of Education, according to school system officials.

The Georgia Scholars program recognizes students who have shown high performances in both academics and community service. There were 295 students from across Georgia who received the honor. The students from Gwinnett who received the recognition represent 10 of the school system’s high schools.

“Students eligible for Georgia Scholar recognition are high school seniors who exhibit excellence in all phases of school life, in community activities, and in the home,” Gwinnett County Public Schools officials said in a statement. “Georgia Scholars are students who have carried exemplary course loads during the four years of high school; who performed excellently in all courses; who successfully participated in interscholastic events at their schools and in their communities; and who have assumed active roles in extracurricular activities sponsored by their schools.”
