Congratulations to Boston Teague

Gilmer High School freshman, Boston Teague, earned a state-level win in the 2022-2023 Daughters of the American Revolution Essay Contest. His win in the local Captain James Kell Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution propelled his work for state consideration, and now his essay moves on to the Southeast Region competition. Subsequent to the regional-level contest is the possibility of national level consideration. He will be recognized for his Georgia DAR achievement by the local DAR chapter, March 16, and at the DAR state convention later this year.

Teague’s research and writing during the fall 2022 semester comprised the use of primary and secondary sources in the production of 1000 words, formatted in the social studies college-level standard of Chicago Manual of Style. His essay discussed the behind-the-scenes influence of American patriot Abraham Woodhull, code name Samuel Culper, during the Revolutionary War. Woodhull, as one of America’s first intelligence officers, led the Culper Spy Ring in gathering information pertaining to British military activities in their area of operations in-and-around New York City during the American Revolution.

Congratulations to GHS

On Thursday, 2/16/23, State School Superintendent Richard Woods named GILMER HIGH SCHOOL as a 2023 Advanced Placement (AP) Honor School in TWO categories. GHS was named a Georgia AP Honor STEM School as well as a Georgia AP Honor STEM Achievement School. The 2023 AP Honor Schools are named in eight categories based on the results of 2022 AP courses and exams.

Superintendent Woods said. “I sincerely congratulate each of this year’s AP Honor Schools on their achievement. Additionally, I thank each teacher, student, and school- and district-level administrator for their diligent work creating strong AP opportunities in these 273 Georgia schools.”
