Star Elementary is great school
Congratulations to Star Elementary School in Carter County! Our children attended Star Elementary and we now have a grandchild in her last year there. We have always been extremely pleased with the education our family received at Star.
Star is small and has often been overlooked concerning building upgrades. However, we have always been blessed with excellent teachers and staff. Thanks to all of the staff and kudos to the students who worked so hard to be a “School of Distinction.” We are so proud of you!
Gordon and Brenda Womack, Grayson
