Outstanding High School Students from Savannah Schools Honored at Savannah Country Day School


(SAVANNAH, GA) Each year the Savannah Country Day School Board of Directors and Faculty honor outstanding area high school students with a banquet given on its campus. This year’s banquet was held on Thursday, February 21st at 6:30 p.m. To honor these exceptional students from the Savannah community, all four-year high schools in Savannah were invited to select two seniors to represent their school at this event. These students joined the Country Day senior members of the National Honor Society for recognition of their accomplishments. These students were selected based on their outstanding scholastic achievements as well as their leadership. Each student in attendance received an award certificate for their outstanding accomplishments. Of the students, Savannah Country Day School Board Chairman, Dr. Blake Long shared—“The many accomplishments of the students were impressive, illustrating their scholarship, service and leadership”

The guest speaker for the event was Dr. Ja A. Jahannes. Dr. Jahannes is a well known educator, psychologist, minister, artist, writer and composer. He has lectured in Africa, Asia, South America and the Middle East. His many honors include the Langston Hughes Award and the Danny Glover Award. He is also the proud father of two Savannah Country Day School graduates. The title of his speech to the students was “Making Wise Choices.” One of the quotes from his message to the students was—
“Life is always changing (for those who will change) and expanding for those who are truly alive”.
