Over 400 Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) middle school students were honored yesterday, November 16, at Clayton State University (CSU) for earning “A” Honor Roll during the first reporting period of the 2017-18 school year at the 3rd Annual CCPS Middle School Honors Day Program.

As part of the program, students attended the CSU women’s basketball game as the Lady Lakers defeated the Carver College Lady Cougars by a score of 90 to 49 as well as received individualized certificates noting their scholastic accomplishments. In addition, each school received a plaque to commemorate the occasion.

“It is always a great day when we get to honor students of Clayton County Public Schools and provide them a glimpse of the college experience,” said Timothy Duncan, CSU Director of Intercollege Athletics. “We believe it is very important to expose students at an early age to the college environment as it could have far-reaching impacts on their decision to attend a college, university or trade school/program after they complete their K-12 education,” he concluded.
Created in 2015, the CCPS Middle School Honors Day Program is an opportunity for students to visit the CSU campus to learn more about its history, academic programs, and meet a variety of distinguished faculty and staff.

“Our students are spectacular, and we are very grateful to have a community partner such as Clayton State University recognize the academic accomplishments of our scholars,” stated Dr. Morcease J. Beasley, Superintendent of Clayton County Public Schools. “As we continue to prepare our students to excel at life after leaving CCPS as graduates, we understand how vital every positive educational opportunity is to their continued growth as the future leaders of this community, state, and nation and we thank CSU for providing this invaluable experience. I would like to congratulate all our ‘A’ Honor Roll students for their hard work throughout the first academic semester. We are very proud of their accomplishments and I encourage you all to keep up the exceptional work,” he concluded.
