Holy Innocents’ senior David Creighton Aldridge, a senior at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School, has been recognized as a STAR student by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators Foundation.
To obtain a STAR nomination, high school seniors must have the highest score on a single test date on the three-part SAT and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.
Aldridge won the Alice L. Malcolm Headmaster’s Award last year, an award given to the rising senior who best exemplifies the philosophy of the school. He is also a member of the Integrity Council, Mu Alpha Theta, the National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society, the Cum Laude Society, Student Diversity Leadership Council, and Student Council.
The 18-year-old is also captain of Holy Innocents’ varsity cross-country team, and a member of the varsity basketball and golf teams. He has also worked with the Horizons Student Enrichment Program for children in low-income families, and serves as an acolyte for All Saints Episcopal Church.
“Creighton Aldridge is a terrific representative of HIES as the 2013 Star Student,” said Chris Pomar, Assistant Headmaster for Enrollment and Planning. “I have asked him to speak with prospective families at the school's admissions Open House on several occasions, and visitors always compliment his maturity, humility, and dry sense of humor.
Aldridge plans to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill next year and study business.
Aldridge has chosen Religious Studies and World Languages teacher Clay Kelsh as his STAR Teacher—the teacher who has made the most significant contribution to that student’s scholastic development.
