PHOTO: Winder-Barrow gets UGA’s director’s cup

The Director's Cup is an award the University of Georgia created three years ago to recognize the high school whose first-year students performed the best in their freshman year at UGA. UGA considers those high schools who have 10 or more students in the  first-year class. Winder-Barrow High School won the 2019 award for freshmen starting in the fall of 2018. Patrick Winder, with the UGA admissions office, presented the award to WBHS principal Al Darby at the October BOE meeting. WBHS students at UGA had a 3.804 GPA at the end of their first-year. There were 129 high schools that sent UGA 10 or more students in fall 2018. Whitewater High School in Fayetteville won the first award for 2017 and Madison County High School got the one for 2018.
