3 Fayette students named Georgia Scholars

(WXIA) -- Three students at two Fayette County high schools have been named 2014 Georgia Scholars by the Georgia Department of Education.

A Georgia Scholar is a high school senior who has "achieved excellence in school and community life," according to the GDOE. Only 116 students statewide earned the title this year.

To achieve the honor, a student must take challenging courses and earn high grades in them, participate in extracurricular activities and take part in interscholastic events within the school and community.

Fayette County's 2014 Georgia Scholars include:

Fayette County HS
* Menaka Reddy

Whitewater HS
* Cecilia Esterline
* Sam McDonald
