Valedictorian and Salutatorian

Shannon High School Class of 2021


Valedictorian - Jacob Lindsey

Salutatorian - Brianna Arledge


Jacob Lindsey has been named STAR Student for the 2020-2021 school year by the Mississippi Economic Council (MEC) M. B. Swayze Foundation, sponsor of the Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program.
Established by the Mississippi Economic Council in 1965, the purpose of the STAR program is to recognize outstanding students and teachers in Mississippi.
The Shannon High School senior will be listed with the 2021 STAR Students and STAR Teachers in the STAR booklet.
STAR Students are selected on the basis of academic excellence. Both American College Test scores and scholastic averages are compared to determine the school’s STAR Student. “The STAR program encourages and promotes academic achievement among Mississippi’s high school seniors. We congratulate all of our STAR Students and STAR Teachers for their exceptional level of achievement,” said Vickie Powell, Senior Vice President of Foundations.
Each STAR Student is asked to designate a STAR Teacher, the teacher who has made the greatest contribution to the student’s scholastic achievement.
Mark Montgomery was designated as STAR Teacher.
Over 600 STAR Students and STAR Teachers will be recognized for their exceptional achievement by MEC’s M.B. Swayze Foundation with medallions, certificates and lapel pins. The top 20 STAR Students –The ALL-STAR Scholars – will receive scholarships and their STAR Teachers will receive awards provided by the Kelly Gene Cook, Sr. Charitable Foundation.
The highlight of STAR is the naming of the Mississippi ALL-STAR Scholar for 2020–2021 school year and winner of the coveted $24,000 Cook Foundation Scholarship.
Shannon High School senior Jacob Lindsey has been selected as a candidate for the 2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.  Overall, 86 Mississippi students are candidates for the national award.
Students ultimately chosen as U.S. Presidential Scholars receive an expense-paid trip to Washington, DC in June and are presented the U.S. Presidential Scholars medallion at a ceremony sponsored by the White House, in commemoration of their achievements. The scholars represent excellence in education and the promise of greatness in young people.
Congratulations, Jacob!
