Congratulations to SHS 2018 graduates Marie Kallay and Liam Salvage for being named Akron Beacon Journal / Ohio.com Star Students. The Akron Beacon Journal/Ohio.com publishes its Star Students special section each spring to recognize high school seniors in Summit, Stark, Medina, Portage, Wayne and southern Cuyahoga counties.
Kallay and Salvage will each receive $1,000 scholarships from the Beacon Journal’s Newspapers in Education program.
Kallay and Salvage were each selected based on their scholarship and participation, along with leadership in school and community activities. Each high school nominated two seniors. A panel of three judges selected the Top 25 Star Students from a field that had been narrowed to 50 semifinalists by Lynne Sherwin, features editor for the Beacon Journal; Joe Thomas, deputy metro editor for the Beacon Journal; and Tara Kerscher, Newspaper in Education coordinator for the Beacon Journal.
