Senior Mark Barrow has been named STAR Student of Bibb County.
He will now go to the regional banquet on March 19 at Middle Georgia State University.

Mark said he did not expect to win in Bibb County.
“It felt good,” he said. “I was surprised.”
He is the second Stratford senior in the past three years to be named STAR student in Bibb. Dylan Quintal was the Bibb STAR student in 2016.
Mr. Mike Kelley is Mark’s STAR teacher and will move on to regionals with him.
