School system recognizes ‘Stars’

Published 10:42 am Thursday, March 7, 2019

Each year, the Stars of the Year for Davie County Schools are announced at the Back to School Convocation in August.

Banners are hung in their honor at their place of work, and then the “stars” shine on a special night of their own.

This year, the Davie County High School Madrigals entertained the group with a performance. After a meal, the stars were awarded a certificate of appreciation for all they do to make a positive difference each day for students and staff of Davie schools. LifeTouch helped celebrate the stars.
