Mary Katie Tigert, a senior at Atlanta High School, has been selected by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP) for the Teens Serving Texas Award.
This prestigious award was designed to recognize Texas high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of community service, leadership and personal accomplishments.
To be considered for this award a student must be nominated by their high school principal. Applicants were selected based on their overall grade point average, pursuit of advanced diploma, and evidence of exceptional service to the community. Each student nominee completed an application that included reference letters, a personal goals essay and documentation of their contribution to the community. From this state-wide group of outstanding leaders, five were chosen to receive the Teens Serving Texas Award and %500 unrestricted scholarship.
As a winner of the TASSP Teens Serving Texas Award, Mary Katie will be invited to the TASSP Summer Workshop in Austin on June 15, 2017, to receive her award in front of approximately 2,100 TASSP principals.
