Christian Dixon Named STAR Student


Christian Robert Dixon was recently named Sacred Heart Catholic High School’s 2017 STAR (Student-Teacher Achievement Recognition) Student. The STAR Student program is sponsored by the Mississippi Economic Council’s M. B. Swayze Educational Foundation and MEC members from communities across the state. To qualify for STAR Student, the student must be a graduating senior with the highest ACT score in the class, the highest set of ACT sub-scores and at least a 93 academic average.

In addition to being named STAR Student, Dixon has been recognized for his academic success through subject-area awards for his academic performance, designation in the school’s ACT 30+ Club, performance as an AP Scholar, and recognition as a Furman Scholar. At Sacred Heart, he is a member of National Honor Society, National Beta Club, Mu Alpha Theta and Campus Ministry Team. He attended Mississippi Boys State as a delegate and participated in Close Up in Washington, DC.  In 2016, Dixon was named Sacred Heart Catholic High School’s Outstanding Undergraduate.

Dixon is the son of Vicki and Kenneth Dixon of Hattiesburg. He is a parishioner at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where he serves as an altar server and volunteer for Lenten fish fries. He has served as a tutor and currently works as a polymer science lab assistant at the University of Southern Mississippi. Dixon will attend the University of Southern Mississippi as a Presidential Scholar in the Honors College. He plans to obtain a degree in Polymer Science and Engineering.

Each student is asked to designate a STAR Teacher who has made the greatest contribution to the student’s scholastic achievement. Dixon has chosen Mr. Scott Roberts, who was his Chemistry teacher. Mr. Roberts has been teaching science for 13 years and was previously selected as a STAR Teacher in 2010. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from the University of Southern Mississippi and is a National Board Certified teacher.

Dixon and Roberts will attend the annual Mississippi Economic Council Education Celebration on April 27 in Jackson with STAR students and STAR teachers from throughout Mississippi. The top twenty STAR students will be presented scholarship awards provided by the Kelly Gene Cook Sr. Charitable Foundation. One student will be named the Mississippi All-STAR Student for the 2016-2017 school year and will receive a $24,000 Cook Foundation Scholarship.
