COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some local high school students received high honors on Wednesday. 

Several students are in the top 10 percent of their class and they also scored really high on the SAT. 

Seven students walked away from the reception Wednesday afternoon feeling like stars. This award will allow them to compete at the regional star competition for a prestigious scholarship.

Ishan Sahoo, a high school senior was named the 2016 Page Star student for Muscogee County School System which includes area private schools. The announcement was made by the Rotary Club of Columbus, who is the local sponsor of the STAR program.

“I hope to go to Georgia Tech…really good STEM school and peruse my love for mathematics and find a career in mathematics,” Sahoo said. 

Ishan Sahoo says going through about four SAT books within two months got him a score high.
