Coby King named STAR Student

MOULTRIE — Coby King, a senior at Colquitt County High School, was named the school’s STAR Student Thursday at a meeting of the Moultrie Kiwanis Club, which each year gives the STAR Student and Teacher a plaque and gives the student a scholarship.

King, who received the award for having the highest SAT score in the graduating class, plans to go to the University of Georgia to major in business and finance.

King chose CCHS Latin and English literature teacher Bryan Baker as his STAR Teacher. He said Baker taught him Latin in his sophomore and junior years, as well as serving as advisor for the Latin Club, of which King is president. He praised Baker’s intellect and devotion to teaching.

For his part, Baker compared King to the Roman poet Horace — who they had studied in Latin I — and described his quick apprehension of the Latin they read.

"Coby," he said, "I know you want to be a wealthy man because you’ve told me so. But no matter how many worldly goods you acquire, you'll never be richer than I am right now as your STAR Teacher."

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
