C Spire Wireless Academic All-Star Presented To Millington Student


Millington, Tenn. (November 12, 2012) – Tabitha Perry, a senior at Millington Central High School, has been named a C Spire Wireless Academic All-Stars Award winner.

Perry is one of six students in the Greater Memphis area who received this week’s award for excellence in Art. C Spire Wireless will recognize more than 160 students during the 2012-2013 school year. Perry and other weekly winners will be honored at a luncheon at the Hilton Memphis, Thursday, May 2, 2013.

Perry is a top student who is well-versed in a variety of media from painting to photography. She has maintained a 3.5 grade point average since her sophomore year and scored 26 on the ACT with a 33 on the English portion of the test. Perry maintains top grades while taking AP classes every Saturday, participating in life drawing classes in the evenings and being involved in Knowledge Bowl practices.

A skilled writer, Perry contributes writings and artwork to the school’s Literary Journal. Her art skills were sought out to complete a large-scale mural in the main building of the school. For the past two years, Perry has been accepted into Memphis College of Art’s AP Studio Art Program. These tuition-free AP classes are taught by one of the college professors. Last year Perry’s work won first place in the 11th grade division of the West Tennessee Regional Art Center Student Art Show.

The C Spire Wireless Academic All-Stars program was conceived to identify and recognize high school students for excellence in academics, school leadership and community service. Now in its 7th year, the C Spire Academic All-Stars Awards are presented weekly for 28 weeks during the academic year from nominations submitted by school administrators.

Judges include educators from Rhodes College, The University of Memphis, LeMoyne-Owen College and Christian Brothers University. Each Sunday during the year, C Spire Academic All-Stars are announced in The Commercial Appeal.
