Miriam Baker, Warner Robins High School senior, and Vania Lee, Houston County High School senior, tied for the 2011 System Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) students for Houston County.
STAR students select a teacher most instrumental in their academic success.

The winners were announced during a program hosted by the Perry Area and Robins Regional Chambers of Commerce at the Houston County Board of Education central office.
Each STAR student and teacher received a $500 savings bond, and the system winners took home an additional $500 bond, for a total of $1,000 each.
Altogether the Chambers presented $7,000 in savings bonds as awards.
