Heather Tell (1992) and Angela Orange (1998) were both elected to the Georgia School Board Association, and Derrius Quarles (2009) was accepted into the newest class of TED residents.
Sam had a hard time finding help to go to college, so he co-founded Peerlift, transforming access to opportunities for high school students across the United States.

Nisha Desai (2004) applied for the Atlantic Council Millennium Fellowship, and Maddie Dill (2014) was named Homecoming Queen at the University of Georgia.
