Georgia Reader of the Year Grace Pfohl


A Cherokee County School District student has been named the top high school reader in the State!

River Ridge High School junior Grace Pfohl won first place and the title of Reader of the Year for the Secondary category (Grades 9-12) at the Georgia Reading Association’s State Competition.  Students are nominated for the award by a reading or English teacher based on the quality, quantity and variety of their reading.  Winners are selected from nominees based on the student’s essay and teacher’s letter of recommendation.

Grace is an active member of both the school’s Tome Society literacy club and the Reading Bowl Team, as well as a member of the Teen Advisory Board for the Sequoyah Regional Library System.

“This award recognizes Grace’s passion for reading and her continuing contributions to literary leadership,” Principal Darrell Herring said.

She will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the School Board’s June 21 meeting.
