Yueran Aaron Yuan of John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School was named this afternoon as Richmond County’s STAR Student during a banquet sponsored locally by the Kiwanis Club of Augusta.

The recognition goes to the student with the highest SAT score of any school, public or private, who ranks in the top 10 percent of the school’s senior class. Mr. Yuan scored a 2330 on the SAT, where a 2400 is a perfect score, and he ranks at the top of his class.

After graduation, he intends to study artificial intelligence and the relationships between people and technology.

CONGRATULATIONS Aaron! You

CONGRATULATIONS Aaron! You earned it! I also found out yesterday Aaron and some other excellent students from Davidson are going to STATE for the Science Olympiad! I know a young fellow that knows Aaron and noticed a while back that he tied young Mr. Yuan on the SAT but realized Aaron was ahead of him in class standing. He would have liked to have won, of course, but he is very pleased that Aaron won and is very proud to know him, as are the rest of his friends. I hope they all will continue to be lifelong learners and achievers.

KUDOS to Master Yuan for his outstanding performance on the Scholastic Achievement Test! Good luck at the regional SAT competition in Thomson next Thursday. I hear that the Columbia County representative, Miss Emily Bragg of Greenbrier High School, is outstanding as well.

Shouldn't THIS be the article titled Top Richmond County STAR Student, not the other one with the 12 pictures?
